Take a walk through the vineyards at Tassel Ridge Winery and make a difference in the fight against all types of cancer. Walk individually or form a team in support of a cancer survivor, someone who is currently fighting against cancer, or in memory of loved ones lost. All proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society®—Relay for Life.

Those unable to walk in the vineyards can participate in Sip for a Cure. Sit and sip a glass of wine, soft drink, or bottle of water and enjoy the view while watching the walk.

Registration for Walk for a Cure and Sip for a Cure is $25 before September 8 and $30 after that date and includes a t-shirt and a glass of wine, a soft drink, or a bottle of water.

All participants who register after September 8 will receive a t-shirt, but they will not be available on September 24. T-shirts will be sent two to three weeks after the walk.

Mahaska Health Partnership will be offering free blood sugar testing from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Health-related information will also be available that day.

Wood Fired Oven Pizzas will be available for $12. Tassel Ridge Winery will donate $1 for each pizza sold between 11 a.m.–4 p.m. to ACS—Relay for Life.

“You don’t have to be talented, wealthy, or brilliant to make a difference for someone else. Just showing you care can be as simple as walking or sitting. At some point in time, you or a loved one may be the recipient of care or services funded in part by someone who cared enough to help with the fight against cancer. Together, we will win the fight against cancer!”—Virginia Pierson, cancer survivor

Hopefully, someday, no one will have to hear the words “you have cancer.”
