Relay for Life

Posted on 11th August 2014 at 09:13

It’s a bit below the initial goal that they had set, but this weekend’s Cowlitz-Wahkiakum Relay for Life still hit six figures in the amount of money raised in support of the American Cancer Society. Saturday and Sunday’s 24-hour event reportedly brought in $125,000, a little over half-way to the goal of $210,000, and less than last year’s total of $192,000. About 500 people took part in this year’s Relay for Life, including Darin Lee, who walked 52 miles as he stayed up for the entire 24 hours. You still have until the 31st of this month to make a donation, which will help boost the bottom line of this year’s event.
