  • ARHS Relay for Life (6:00 pm to Saturday 6:00 am) @ Algonquin Regional High School: The overnight fundraiser is in support of the American Cancer Society. The schedule combines fun times with meaningful moments to motivate in the fight against cancer. Each registered team gets their own campsite at the event that where they can set up tents. Starting at 6:00 pm on Friday, members of teams will relay to take turns walking the track, led by cancer survivors from the community. When participants are not walking, they can participate in a variety of other fun activities. (A dinner for cancer survivors and caregivers will be held at 5:30 pm, which will be followed by opening ceremonies at 6:30 pm.) For details, click here.
