Relay event raises a record amount

by Jennifer Biller

STAFF WRITER

Last weekend's Harrison County Relay for Life was the most successful in the event's seven-year history.

Participants and contributors raised approximately $115,000 for the American Cancer Society, said Beth Miller, chairperson for the Harrison County Relay for Life.

"This is the first time we've ever raised over $100,000," she said. "We had 80 teams participate and it was a big success."

Relay for Life is a national fundraiser held annually to help raise money for cancer cure research.

"The committee set a goal of $100,000 and the teams exceeded it," said Denene Satterfield, co-chairperson for Harrison County Relay for Life.

Locally, teams of 10 to 12 people walked laps around the Robert C Byrd High School football field for the event. The total number of laps walked is still being calculated.

"We had about 150 cancer survivors walking the first two laps," Miller said.

The teams of walkers consisted of businesses, schools, churches and cancer survivors and victims.

"We are thankful for all the teams' efforts and all the community support," Satterfield said. "Hopefully next year will be even better."

No date has been established yet for next year's relay.
