Pulaski County’s Relay for Life 2008 raised $92,832. A goal of $100,000 has been set for 2009, Jenkins said, noting that teams would have until August 31 to reach that goal.
"Whether our monetary goal is met or not, with the dedication and support of this community, our volunteers, and survivors we will reach our "goal" by serving patients, saving lives and continuing to fight against this dreaded disease with the funds raised by Relay For Life," Jenkins said.
She added, "we also want to remind everyone that the Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature event" and that this year celebrates Relay’s "25th year of hope."
Since Relay became the ACS’ signature event, "we are saving over 90 lives a day," she said.
Money raised by the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life in Pulaski County supports research, education, early detection programs as well as local patient programs and services to Pulaski community residents.
