Christian County Relay for Life officials are still working on finishing up this year’s fundraising to meet their goal while already looking toward next year.
Relay Chair Ashley Johnson says she’s received a few more donations since the local relay—which finished with $126,046 raised toward the $130,000 goal.
Ms. Johnson says anyone who wants to make a monetary donation can do so by calling her at 839-4400. She says there will also be another fundraiser before the end of August which will hopefully help them reach the goal.
Meanwhile, preparations for the 2013 relay are underway and a meeting is set for Tuesday evening at 5:30 in the conference room of the Doctor’s Pavilion at Jennie Stuart Medical Center for anyone interested in participating.
Relay for life events are held in nearly every county and raise money for cancer research and cancer patients through the American Cancer Society.
