The economy may be down, but local residents and businesses still found a way to give to Lancaster’s 15th annual Relay for Life.
The event, held April 23 and 24 to raise local awareness and funds for cancer prevention, treatments and cures, raised $204,700.
The amount, raised by 63 teams, was very close to the projected goal of $215,000, said American Cancer Society representative Sue McLeese.
“It’s absolutely stupefying, it’s wonderful,” McLeese said. “That is just the best pat on the back and high five you could get.”
