Members of the planning committee are excited to announce CMS Health Care as the title sponsor for this year’s Relay For Life of Brown County’s event. The 2013 Relay For Life of Brown County will start at 7 p.m. Friday, June 7 at Gordon Wood Stadium.

“Cancer has touched so many people in this community including my father and sister-in-law and all three of the original owners of CMS were affected by cancer. It was an easy decision because we are all so passionate for Relay and finding a cure for cancer,” said David Furry, owner of CMS Healthcare. “This community has been so support of us for 25 years. We wanted to give back.”
