RELAY FOR LIFE VERY SUCCESSFUL
Friday and Saturday, June 5-6, was the Bond County Relay for Life and according to Nancy Royer Green, this was another successful year. The goal set for this year was $56,000 and at the close of the Relay at 6:00 AM Saturday, a total of $61,147 had been raised. Approximately 400 team members on 22 teams plus committee members and volunteers brought the number directly involved in the Relay for Life this year to around 600, plus community persons who came out for the event. Just under 400 luminaries were lighted in memory of persons who have had or have cancer and the single file silent lap, under the full moon and star filled sky, was a very emotional ceremony and walk for all there. A total of 68 cancer survivors registered for this years Relay.
The Spirit Trophy went to CVS this year. This is a traveling trophy to be passed from team to team. Criteria to earn the trophy for a year is based upon number of fundraisers, campsite theme, donations for auction, attendance at team captain meetings and events, and participation in games during Relay night.
