American Cancer Society Relay for Life event

29 teams participated in this year’s American Cancer Society Relay for Life event held Friday evening through Saturday on the football field at Palm Harbor University High (PHUH).

Members of individual teams traded off walking around the track. Teams set up campsites on the football field for napping and to use as a home base. There was also plenty of food, games and other activities for participants.

PHUH Principal Christen Tonry was this year’s Event Chair. Palm Harbor Relay for Life teams raised at total of $75,965 during the event, according to the organization’s website. The money stays in the Palm Harbor Community.

Teams were honored for their fundraising efforts before the relay began. Tonry read the names of the teams and individuals who raised the largest amounts of money.
