Clarke County Relay for Life raises more than $22,000
The past weekend’s first-ever American Cancer Society Relay For Life® of Clarke County raised $22,483 to support the society’s mission of saving lives from cancer.
More than 200 volunteers walked from 6 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Saturday. The weather was not cooperative and a dangerous thunderstorm with lighting and rain forced the event to move into the high-school gym where teams continued to walk laps throughout the night.
“Through their hard work in preparing for the event, and by spending hours walking for the cause, Clarke County residents certainly did their part to help the American Cancer Society create a world with less cancer and more birthdays,” said Karen Irwin, volunteer chair for the 2013 Relay For Life.
