Relay For Life Raises Thousands of Dollars for the American Cancer Society

By  | 

The Panama City Beach Relay for Life took place Friday night through Saturday Morning.

More than 200 people showed up throughout the night to rally for the cause.

The event was held at Arnold High School’s Gavlak Sports Complex and raised over 70 thousand dollars for the American Cancer Society.

30 local teams prepared for the event for months, and despite how exhausting the event can be, they say they are happy to support those who have been affected by cancer.

"The Relay for Life is one of the biggest fundraisers of any non-profit organization. Panama City Beach alone raised 70,000 dollars, Relay for Life as a whole has raised 4 billion dollars since 1985," said Brandon Greve, Relay for Life Event Chairman.
