Why We Help the Relay for Life

Blog by Kim McMillan

I was asked to be involved with the very first Marion County Relay for Life event and continued to served as a team recruitment chair for several years.  My mother, Jan Monken, and I served as co-chairs for the event for 3 years.
Our family (like everyone) has been hit hard by cancer. The hardest was the loss of my cousin, Troy Crocker, who died in 1999 at the age of 29, leaving behind two small children. That is when the Monken family vowed to fight hard to help eradicate cancer.

The Marion County Relay for Life will be on Friday, June 17, 2016 at Fairview Park in Centralia.   We will have our annual  Monken Mega Nacho booth at the event from 4:00-10:00pm.  At this time, we have 16 members on Team Monken.

The Monken Family and Monken Dealerships support the Marion County Relay for Life 100%.

We hope to see you there!
