Carroll County Relay Surpasses $200,000 Mark Again In 2017

Kim Durst, Senior Community Manager for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life, says that even though team numbers were down from 2016 at the June 23 Relay, fundraising numbers in Carroll County remained high. The final tallies have been made on the 2017 Relay with a total of $202,000 raised to serve cancer patients and survivors of all types of cancers. Durst reports that sponsorship remained stronger than ever with just under $40,000 coming in. The money raised will be used to support research efforts, to advocate for patients and families and to pass laws that help to protect everyone from this devastating disease. The entire Carroll County Relay for Life organizational and leadership teams want to give a special thank you to the individuals, businesses and teams who helped put them over the $200,000 mark again this year. Durst also announced the top fundraisers as Team Bass and The Graphic Edge, who raised at least $15,000 each. A full listing of the top team finishers and sponsors can be found below.
