Brrr for a Cure

I just found out my mother-in-law has cancer. Once again I find myself thinking and wishing I could do more to find a cure.

Have you ever felt that way? If you have, why not take part in a new fundraiser right here in Forest Lake?

Come participate in the Forest Lake Relay for Life’s “Brrr for a Cure” on Forest Lake’s First Lake. You can ski, snowshoe, run or walk on Sunday, Feb. 16. Registration starts at 5:30 p.m. and gun time is 6:30 p.m.

Enjoy a night with your family, friends and neighbors as luminaries light your way along the groomed path. Willowbrook Church and Faith Lutheran Church will host water stops along our course. We will entertain you with music, games and prizes as you travel the course and hang out at the outposts.

Your $25 registration fee paid at the event will cover your race gear and get you entered into our raffle drawings throughout the evening.

I would like to thank those who have come alongside us in our inaugural event.

Come support the Forest Lake Relay for Life in our inaugural “Brrr for a Cure!”
