Fireworks lit up the sky at the Relay for Life event last Friday. Though the rain came and went throughout the evening, the blazing lights were still ignited, as if to symbolize the triumph of the survivors present.
The Relay for Life event raised $58,600 for the American Cancer Society this year. Though co-chairs Ali Dower and Tracy Powers wanted to raise $70,000, they were very pleased with the amount raised, said Dower.
About 27 teams turned in money for the event and more will be raised this month.
