The annual Wayne County Relay for Life raised $634,201.38 this year, organizers announced at an awards banquet Thursday night -- the most of any county in the state. The amount fell short of last year's total, but officials said they were pleased that the event did so well despite a slow economy. A Postal Service box to allow people to continue to send donations has been established. Donations can be mailed to: Wayne County Relay for Life, P.O. Box 11215, Goldsboro, N.C., 27532.
Dr. Lee Adams, left, of the Shepherd Shockers Relay for Life Team, Cathy Turnage of the Wal-Mart Store No. 1236 team and Stephanie McCloud of the N.C. Angels team display the awards they accepted on behalf of their teams, who were among the top money-raising teams at the event.
