Relay for Life exceeds goal, effort tops $55,000

Posted April 28, 2015 at 8:03 pm

The 2015 Clinton County Relay For Life event is now history, and once again–despite the constant threat of bad weather throughout the afternoon and evening–was another tremendous success, as the local committee exceeded its goal in the amount of funds raised for the American Cancer Society’s fight against cancer.

This year’s theme, “A Carnival of Hope,” was once again held at the Clinton County High School, outdoors and indoors, and when all was said and done, a total of $55,437.56 was raised. That total exceeded the local group’s goal of $51,000 and was a little over $5,000 above last year’s $50,000 total raised.

The format for the program was a bit different this year, starting at 3 p.m. Saturday afternoon and culminating around 10 p.m. .

The events began outside with carnival theme activities
