Fund raising efforts were continued at the Relay for Life's Relay night, which began on Friday, June 16 at 7:00 p.m. and then wound down around 7:00 a.m. the next morning.
Many games and activities were planned throughout the night and morning to keep the walkers awake and on their toes. The Relay held its own version of Fear Factor and had each team design the latest fashions in paper towel chic.
The night also included a special ceremony to honor all of the cancer survivors, a luminary vigil to also honor cancer survivors as well as those who lost the battle against the terrible illness and a fireworks extravaganza.
"Everything was truly wonderful this year," said Relay for Life Director Michelle Head.
On Saturday morning at 7:00 a.m., Head proudly announced the final total along with the top three teams for dollar amount raised and spirit.
