Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery and his wife, Margaret McCaffery, will serve as honorary co-chairs of Johnson County’s Relay for Life, which is sponsored by the American Cancer Society. The fund-raising event is scheduled to take place on June 24 at the Cretzmeyer Track in Iowa City, with the opening ceremonies set to take place that evening at 7 p.m. Central.

According to a release sent Wednesday, team registration fees are $150, and the event’s Planning Committee is still in need of volunteers to assist with tasks, including set-up and tear-down.

“The American Cancer Society and Relay for Life are causes that are close to Margaret and I because cancer has affected both of our families,” Fran McCaffery said in the release. “It’s for this reason that we have teamed with the American Cancer Society to raise awareness and make the June 24 fund-raising event a successful one. We’re excited to be involved and we urge the Johnson County area to help us fight this disease.”

Those interested in forming a team for the event are encouraged to visit the Johnson County Relay for Life’s official page, and those wanting to volunteer are encouraged to email Lindsay Hora.
