Revamped Relay is on target
All the money hasn't been counted yet, but it looks as though the Relay for Life of South Clackamas County & Woodburn will reach its fund raising goal of $110,000.
The Relay for Life event, which features Canby, Molalla and, this year, Woodburn, seemed to go off pretty well at its new venue at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm on Saturday, June 29.
"The tri-city cooperation was amazing," said Sharon Braden, one of the organizers. "This was a bunch of hard workers. Barb Iverson said that she loved the event and it was the easiest one they've ever done.
"Plans are already being made for next year," Braden added.
Braden said the attendance was good and that people seemed to enjoy the new venue and format, which interestingly enough did not include the traditional walking "relay" portion.
As of now, the total raised by the event sat at just under $100,000, giving Braden the feeling that the $110,000 goal was well within reach.
