Looking back at the last 4 radio jobs I've held, I've lost one co-worker from each station since January. Three of the four losing their lives to cancer. It touches everyone.

The Annual Steele County Relay for Life is this Friday, July 19 starting at 6pm at the Steele County Fairgrounds. This years goal is $100,000 which will not only be used to fight cancer but also for other cancer related items. They include the Hope Lodge in Minneapolis and Rochester where cancer patients can stay free of charge. Some of the money also goes to things such as bras and wigs for those fighting cancer. And of course, a large chunk goes to research in the battle against cancer.

Along with the relay, the annual Daikin Dash will take place Saturday morning at the fairgrounds. Pick up and registration will be from 7-7:30am with the 5K starting at 8am. First place in age bracket per gender will all get an award. You can pre-register here.
