Rain postpones Relay for Life in Pope County

Although the Pope County Relay for Life event was postponed due to the heavy rain and localized flooding Friday night, it did not dampen the spirits of people fighting cancer in Pope County.

Plans are under way to hold some sort of relay in the near future and will be announced as soon as they are finalized.

Together, relay teams, supporters and sponsors have raised nearly $24,000 for the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life of Pope County, according to organizers.

Relay for Life events help communities celebrate the lives of those who have faced cancer, remember loved ones lost and fight back against the disease.

Donations to Relay for Life of Pope County can still be dropped off or mailed to Glenwood State Bank, Attention: Michelle Moorer.
