‘Relay for Life’ Faces Trouble From Health Department

‘Relay for Life’, an attempt by the American Cancer Society to raise fund for cancer treatment, has reportedly raised about $100,000 in donations.

Setting the target at $324,000, the organizers plan to celebrate a huge birthday party to observe the significance of the survival of several cancer patients every year.

Several entertainment activities like bounce houses, live music, video games and other competitions will go side by side as the participants will walk the track.

With the signing up of new team members and the superfluous response from the survivors, the volunteers and the sponsors, Kenosha’s Relay for Life, is sure to rock this time, too, as ever.

But the Davis County Health Department is likely to cause some trouble for the event, it seems. The Relay for Life, now happening for almost 10 years, this year had some intrusion, with Health Department workers asking for food sales permit.

A Health Department worker, Linda, is said to have declared that the booth operators could not sell with a required permit.

Joshua Palmer, a participant at the Relay, was disappointed about the fact that the information, which had come at the end moment, should have been announced weeks before the event.

“This could come back and be negative for the Health Department. There was no warning ahead of time”, Palmer said.

Greg Seegmiller said that paying the Health Department would mean less money for cancer treatment, which was altogether a bad sign.
