Relay fundraising in full swing

The Woodburn Area Relay for Life has already collected nearly $34,000 in cash donations, co-chair Rhonda Judson announced Monday.

“Thanks to the hard work of sponsorship chair Bill Szabo we have over $31,000 in commitments from 70 area businesses, including over $8,000 in-kind to cover 97 percent of our expenses,” she said in a press release.

Since starting the local Relay for Life event in 2002, the Woodburn area has raised over $900,000 to fund cancer research and patient support.

To date, 40 teams have signed up to raise money, according to co-chair Don Judson.

This year’s Relay is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. on Friday, July 11 and will conclude at noon on Saturday, July 12.
