The Delaware County Relay for Life has announced its fundraising total for this year’s event.
The Relay, held June 29th at the fairgrounds in Manchester, raised over $66,000.
Thirty-one teams participated this year, with the top ten fundraising teams including Dental Associates, Family Affair, Our Savior Lutheran Church, Ryan Shamrocks, F&M Bank, Walken and Roxen, Hope & Faith, Regional Medical Center, GNB Bank and First Lutheran Church.
The top ten individual money raisers were Janice Wilson, Mary Mauer, Shirley Helmrichs, Christel Manson, Shirley Wickman, Julie Krogmann, Sherilyn Cook, Lisa Hepke, Allen Wilson and Craig Zebuhr.
And just over 1,000 luminaries were sold this year.
