The Banaszek family from East Moline & Cedar Rapids would like to thank everyone in the Quad-Cities area and beyond who donated towards our Relay for Life team.

We recently participated in the Relay for Life in Cedar Falls, IA and with the communities help, we as a team were able to raise $5,898! Our team was the No. 1 team out of 80 teams that weekend in the most donations received! Our team also had the No. 1 individual for most donations received, Jenna Banaszek, our team captain!

In total, the Cedar Falls Relay for Life event raised over $88,000 for the American Cancer Society's ongoing research for a cure to cancer, so no one EVER has to hear the words "You have cancer" again.

Again, thank you to everyone who donated toward our $3,000 goal, baked goods or just wished us luck. It paid off and we had a wonderful time for a great cause.

Michelle Banaszek,
for Team Banaszek,
We CANCERvive!
