  • Saturday's Pulaski County Relay for Life raised more than $4,800 during the 12-hour event with 400- 500 participants.
    In total, Relay for Life Pulaski County has raised $64,606.32 so far this year.
    Relay for Life Pulaski County Event Chair Goldie Spahn said that total does not include a few other sponsorships or the total from the Penny Wars competition.
    "Despite the rainy weather, the event was a success," Spahn said. "Everyone stayed encouraged and danced in the rain. I was excited to see so many Survivors and the residents from the Life Care Center."
    The event included several local speakers sharing their stories and connections with cancer, including Waynesville Mayor Luge Hardman, Rep. Steve Lynch and Jill Devault of Phelps County Regional Medical Center (PCRMC), which sponsored the event.
    Relay for Life will host a Relay Bazaar on Oct. 26 at The Village in St. Robert from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. The organization hopes to raise $75,000 this year.
    Last year, Pulaski County Relay For Life raised more than $43,800 with 24 teams and 64 cancer survivors participating.
