Collecting nearly $12,000, the top Relay for Life team was recognized at a special event Tuesday afternoon.
Kicking Cancer, through a number of fundraising efforts, brought in $11,563.90 of the over $130,000 raised in 2017.
“Our main focus was to help go towards cancer research,” LeeAnn Walker said as she held the large glass trophy.
Her teammate and team founder Tracy Garneau started the team three years ago when her father was diagnosed with cancer. Almost each of the over 20 members of the team has been touched by the illness in some way.
