They met their goal. Not only did more people participate, they also raised more money to help fight cancer.
Taylor County’s annual Relay for Life events were Friday and Saturday at Taylor County High School’s track.
Jamaal Stiles, chair of this year’s events, said the goal was to raise $40,000. As of last weekend, about $37,000 had been collected with more donations expected.
Last year, he said, about $32,500 was raised.
“We’re so happy,” Stiles said.
