            This weekend’s Relay For Life event in Kodiak raised more than 47-thousand 700 dollars for the American Cancer Society.

            The event featured about 21 teams of eight to 15 people each walking around the track at Baranof field for 24 hours, from Friday night to Saturday. One of the organizers Pam Foreman estimates that close to 300 people turned out as participants and spectators.

            Besides the relay other events included a candlelight vigil, a live auction, and the quarter mile, which was an attempt to line the outside of the track with quarters to create a quarter mile. Although they weren’t able to get all of the quarters needed to line the entire track, Foreman says that the event raised more than 25-hundred dollars.

            Foreman says organizers are “very, very pleased with the amount raised.”
