The city of Creston turned out in full “color” to support the First National Bank Relay for Life Team Hope Glows 5K Glow Fun Walk/Run on Saturday, April 12, at McKinley Park. The event was a huge success thanks to the amazing sponsors, volunteers and over 500 participants.

The First National Bank Relay for Life Team would like to extend our appreciation to the following people: Hy-Vee, along with Chuck Irelan and his family for providing and cooking food; Creston Shooters, Roger Nurnberg and Brandon Vonk for the beautiful fireworks show; Winterstein Construction for the amazing Hope Glows boulders given as prizes; Tiffany Troutwine for her DJ service; Creston Fire Department and Mick Landers for keeping an eye on the storm; Jo Duckworth for keeping volunteers informed on the storm; Gary McNichols for helping gather and set up generators; AgriVision for providing the John Deere Gators for the day; Creston Park and Recreation, Mark Huff and John Anderson; Caleb with Casey’s North for donating ice; Creston News Advertiser and Kyle Wilson for the wonderful job helping to promote the event; Ferrera Candy Company for donating gummy bears for all the participants; Creston High School Peppers for cheering on all the participants; and Randy Huewe from First National Bank.

We plan to make this an annual event to raise funds for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Southwest Iowa. Cancer touches so many lives and through supporters like you, every day we can get a little closer to beating it. Thank you again to all and we look forward to seeing everyone next year.
