Nine teams raised more than $41,000 for the American Cancer Society last weekend.

Treasurer Janice Aagard said a total of $41,603.77 was raised at the 2012 Wadena County Relay for Life, which was held at Sunnybrook Park on Aug. 10.


Cancer survivors at the event had their names read off as they walked the first lap around the park.

Luminaries were placed around the trails in memory of people who have died from cancer, as well as those who have survived it.
