The Washington County Relay for Life committee has more than 50,000 reasons to thank everyone who supported Relay this year – 54,492 reasons to be exact. That’s how many dollars were raised during the all-night event held this past weekend at St. Catharine College.

As the event reached the final hour at 6 a.m., many campsites were breaking down and ready to head home. A brief ceremony was held recognizing the top three money-raising teams. The team from Toyotomi came in first by raising $9,252, followed by Karen’s Crusaders, who finished second with $6,312.63 and third place Fishing for a Cure, who raised $4,105.85. Mammaw’s Family received the award for Most Team Spirit.
