Relay For Life raises $96,000-plus in Havre de Grace

Before the first steps were taken Friday evening, the annual Relay For Life cancer research fundraiser in Havre de Grace was already a huge success.

Event organizers announced during the opening ceremonies at James R. Harris Stadium at Havre de Grace High School that more than $96,000 in pledges had been secured.

It was a beautiful evening for the event, which combines walking, games, entertainment, fellowship and more walking. The blue skies and bright sunshine as participants, entertainers and dignitaries were arriving around 6 p.m. was a stark contrast to two weeks before when Andrea, the first named storm of the season, dumped several inches of rain and forced the event to be delayed.
