Relay For Life, a team event to fight cancer

Logan County will host the sixth annual Relay For Life at the Laughlin Center at Lincoln Christian College and Seminary on May 9 and 10. The Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society's signature event. It is truly a celebration of cancer survivorship and an outstanding way to honor those who have triumphed over cancer and to remember those we have lost to the disease.

Cancer is the second leading cause of death in Illinois. In 2003 it is expected that 57,160 Illinoisans will be diagnosed with cases of cancer. This is equivalent to 157 new cases every day and almost seven new cases every hour. Approximately 25,610 Illinoisans will die of cancer this year, about 70 people a day.

There are about eight million people alive today who have had some type of cancer. Every year more and more people survive cancer. This is especially true of children with cancer because of the new treatments and technology.

Last year the Relay For Life raised over $14,000,000 in Illinois. Of this amount, 60 percent stayed in our state.

By forming a team from your company, church, school, neighborhood or other group, you will not only be part of a great community event, but you will raise funds to improve the quality of life for cancer patients today and the outlook for those diagnosed in the future. We hope to raise $65,000 from this year's event. To reach our goal, we need your support!

This year's festivities officially begin at 8 p.m. Friday and conclude Saturday at noon. The overnight fund-raiser helps to support the organization's programs of cancer research, education, patient services and advocacy.

This year's gold sponsors for the event are CEFCU, Family Medical Center, Lincolnland Communication/Cingular, Wal-Mart, and Lincoln Christian College and Seminary.

Local co-chairs are Mary Ellen Martin and Kathy Blaum.

If you are interested in learning more about this important event, please call 732-9372, 732-3349 or
1 (800) 252-5302.

Team up with friends for MS Walk

[MARCH. 4, 2003]  Helping improve the lives of a third of a million Americans is a big job, but it's not overwhelming with a little help from your friends. Bring a group of friends or family members and join other teams on Sunday, April 6, for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society's 2003 MS Walk. Chat with your team as you walk down the 1˝-mile course through Kickapoo Creek Park and toward a cure for MS. The walk begins at 1:30 p.m.

Teams of walkers collect contributions for completing the course. The money raised from the MS Walk helps the society continue to lead the way in MS programs, research and professional education.

"I always have fun walking for the National MS Society," said Donita Biggs of Lincoln. "I always meet new people and get to see some of my old friends while I walk. Although I have so much fun, I am really here to help the third of a million Americans living with MS. It's the least I can do."

The National MS Society is dedicated to ending the devastating effects of MS. Thanks to significant advances in research, the FDA has approved several treatments that may alter the underlying course of MS, and early treatment is critically important. People with MS should consult their doctors about using one of the FDA-approved medications and other effective treatments for the symptoms of MS.


[to top of second column in this article]

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is the only national voluntary MS organization that meets the standards of all major agencies that rate the fiscal responsibility of nonprofit groups

Multiple sclerosis is a chronic, unpredictable neurological disease. MS can cause blurred vision, loss of balance, poor coordination, slurred speech, tremors, numbness, extreme fatigue, problems with memory and concentration, paralysis, and blindness. These problems may be permanent, or they may come and go.

For more information about MS, the MS Walk, or to walk, volunteer or sponsor someone in the MS Walk, please call Nancy Ireland at 732-2339 or the National MS Society at 1 (800) FIGHT MS, or visit

New Habitat house will go to Mount Pulaski family

[MARCH. 1, 2003]  The ground will be a-shakin' and a-breakin' at 507 S. Layette St., Mount Pulaski, at 4:30 p.m. this Sunday. The Logan County Habitat for Humanity and friends will be breaking ground for a new house. The Christopher and Jackie Hagan family will inhabit the home when it is completed. The Hagans have three children: Brooke, Dawson and Colton.

The event marks the 10th anniversary for the local Habitat chapter, and this will be their seventh home.

Funds raised at the recent snowball dance are being used to purchase materials for the house. Habitat also received matching funds for the project from Wal-Mart. A second bonus check will be given later in the year.

Local Wal-Mart manager Vicky Hubbard said that Wal-Mart is a company that specializes in many grants for organizations that need funding, such as schools, fire and police department special programs, grandparents grant with the Oasis and Elkhart, and environmental grants.

Construction at the Mount Pulaski site will begin in the latter part of March, weather permitting.

Everyone is invited to attend the ceremony.

Family and Friends in the Armed Forces

It is a time like no other. Since Sept. 11, 2001, we are a changed nation. Individually, our daily sensitivity toward whom and what we have in our lives has been heightened. We are more conscious and appreciative, first about those we love and see every day. Next, we have a newfound appreciation for those who risk their lives every day as rescue workers and protectors of life and property in our communities. We also now think more about our military men and women who are committed to serve and protect our country. Many are away engaged in battle, some are in waiting to go, all are ready to lay their lives on the line in defense of our freedom.

Friends and relatives serving in the armed forces are listed here so we might all hold them in our thoughts, prayers and well wishes. If you know of other friends and relatives serving (they need not be from Logan County), please send the information to Along with the name, you are invited to include the branch of service, current location of service, postal address, e-mail address and relationship to the person providing the information (optional).
