Sisters in Great Bend Support Cancer Walk

Sisters and cancer survivors Rose Mary Stein, Marie Hageman, and Charlene Moser lead the way at the Great Bend Relay for Life.

The Dominican Sisters of Peace and friends sponsored a team for the local Relay for Life in Great Bend, KS.

Due to heavy rains and the abundance of mosquitos Veteran’s Park, the traditional site for the event, the 2019 Relay for Life was held indoors at the high school on June 7.

The Dominican Sisters of Peace team raised over $5,000 for cancer research and patient support.

The Sisters held several fundraising events, including a pie fest at the Great Bend Motherhouse, and a luminaria sale. They also accepted donations.

The theme for the 2019 Relay for Life was “Cities,” and the Dominican Sisters team chose New Orleans. The table at the Relay event and their luminaria were decorated in the colors of the Crescent City.
