Delaware County Relay for Life Raises Nearly $51,000 for the Year

The Delaware County Relay for Life held a successful fundraiser Saturday morning.

The group was able to raise nearly $1500 selling old Relay for Life t-shirts. They were offering two shirts for a minimum of five dollars at the parking lot of Advanced Eyecare Associations and Milestones Group on West Main in Manchester.

It was their last big push for fundraising for the year before turning in their money at the end of the month.

With no Relay for Life event held in June due to COVID-19, they tried to get creative with fundraising. Between the t-shirt sales, the teams’ fundraisers and the radiothon and live concert held on KMCH in June, the Delaware County Relay for Life was still able to raise nearly $51,000 this year for the American Cancer Society.
