Idea Marketing Group is proud to announce that we’re sponsoring Relay For Life of Kendall County 2017!

The American Cancer Society’s main fundraiser, Relay For Life events are held across the country, with more than 3.5 million cancer survivors, caregivers, patients, volunteers, and advocates participating to raise money and spread awareness. According to the American Cancer Society website, “each event is 6-24 hours in length and each team is asked to have a member on the track at all times to signify that cancer never sleeps. Cancer patients don’t stop because they’re tired, and for one night, neither do we.”

During a Relay event, teams come together to create a themed campsite, participate in fun activities and games, and reach their fundraising goal by selling goods, raffle baskets, food, etc. It’s a time for the community to come together as one to work towards a cure for cancer and remember those loved ones who have been affected.

This year, Relay for Life of Oswego, Montgomery, and Yorkville is joining forces with Relay for Life of Plano, Sandwich, and Somonauk to create the new Relay For Life of Kendall County. So far they’ve raised over $18,500 on their way to their event goal of $37,500!

Relay for Life of Kendall County will  be held at Yorkville High School on Saturday, June 10, 2017 from 3 to 11pm. This year’s theme is baseball, in honor of Chicago’s very own World Series Champions, The Chicago Cubs!

As a corporate sponsor, Idea Marketing Group is honored to support such an important cause and help raise money for The American Cancer Society. If you’re planning on attending, look out for our logo on the back of the t-shirts!

It’s not too late to support Relay! You may even have a neighbor, friend, family member, or someone you know in the community participating. In fact, a member of the Idea team, our Marketing Associate Becca Jude, has been participating in Relay For Life of Oswego, Montgomery, Yorkville for 7 years with her family. If you’d like to support Becca’s family’s team, Walking For A Cure, please visit their fundraising page.
