Carnival For A Cure Is Thursday In Rock Rapids

Rock Rapids, Iowa — The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a little different in Lyon County when compared to the relays in other counties in northwest Iowa.

Lyon County has a carnival theme — in fact, it’s called “Carnival For A Cure.” Rochelle Herbert is one of the people organizing the event this year. She says it’ll be this Thursday night, June 13th during Heritage Days festivities at the courthouse square in Rock Rapids.

She says there’s also a dunk tank.

Dunk Tank Lineup:
5:00 to 5:15 – Ron Rice
5:15 to 5:30 – CL Principal Steve Harman
5:30 to 5:45 – Lyon County Treasurer Russ Hopp
5:45 to 6:00 – Justin Hinrichs
6:00 to 6:15 – Lyon County Deputy Sheriff Chad Klosterbuer
6:15 to 6:30 – CL Principal Jason Engleman
6:30 to 6:45 – Keith VanBeek
6:45 to 7:00 – Dr. Joe Murphy, dentist

They tell us the event is part celebration, part fundraiser, and all to help bring an end to cancer.
