The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life started Friday night at Bonney Lake High School and ran until Saturday afternoon.
This year 31 teams participated in the overnight event. A total of 231 registered participants helped support the fight against cancer and among those were 41 cancer survivors.
At the press deadline, more than $42,000 has been raised for Bonney Lake’s relay.
Bonney Lake’s Event Chairperson Christy Minzey said money can still be raised and turned in until August 31.
“A special thanks goes out to all the committee, our sponsors, participants, the community, the city and the Sumner school district!,” Minzey wrote in an email. “With the help of everyone involved this event was a huge success.”
