The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of the Tri Counties raised $67,426.07 on Friday, May 1.
Emotions were high at the Gilchrist County Agriculture Complex as citizens from Gilchrist, Levy and Dixie counties gathered to celebrate success with cancer survivors, remember those who have lost their battles, and to encourage those currently fighting cancer.
The annual Relay For Life provides money for research, and support services for local cancer patients and their families.
In all, 39 teams and 274 registered participants worked tirelessly to raise the $67,426.07 at this year’s Relay. At least 56 cancer survivors registered at the event.
