2011 ‘Relay for Life’ exceeds fund goal


The funds are still coming in, but the American Cancer Society’s preliminary totals are showing a very successful 2011 “Relay for Life” here.

As of the end of June, the American Cancer Society was showing that the Switzerland County event had so far raised $55,565.90 – which is nearly $10,000 more than the $48,000 goal that was set before the Relay was held.

Donations are still being accepted, and any donations made before August 31st will be counted in this year’s totals.

For information on how to donate, contact event co-chairpersons Debbie Allen or Valerie Smith.
