Amid mostly dry, temperate weather, the 2012 Trigg County Relay For Life, the 15th annual such event, raised $126,300.40 – the most that has been raised at the event since the late 2008 economic crash.

Representative Ed Whitfield said Relay teams across the country are going to do everything they can to help provide funding for the National Institute of Health so they can keep working on the cure for cancer.

“As you know, this is going on across America. All of us have been touched by cancer, one way or the other,” Whitfield said. “And throughout the history of mankind, we’ve been successful in beating a lot of diseases; polio, measles, all sorts of diseases.”

“Hopefully, one day … we’ll be talking about this disease in the past tense, much the way we do polio and measles today,” Trigg County Judge Executive Stan Humphries said. “But how do we get there? It’s up to hard-working people like you and I to carry on the fight.”
