POMEROY — Efforts of the Meigs County Relay for Life to raise money for the American Cancer Society were successful with $20,246.52 already turned in and an anticipated increase in that amount since all collections have not been completed.

Courtney Midkiff reported that the fund raising goal this year had been set at $27,000.

At the Relay for Life event held in the Thompson-Roush Building on the Meigs County Fairgrounds, 43 cancer survivors attended, along with many family and friends who support fund raising for the Cancer Society. Nine teams participated in raising money through projects and contributions over the past several months.

As before, the Relay for Life program was held at the Thompson-Roush Building on the Meigs County Fairgrounds.
