The Trimble Banner
The grand total, so far, for this year’s Trimble County Relay for Life is $30,043, according to organizer Myrna Persell.
The amount far surpasses last year’s total of just over $22,000.
“I’m just ecstatic,” she said. Other counties have industries that donate large amounts of funds and also provide volunteers for the event. Here in rural Trimble County, the funding was raised by the hard work and dedication of individuals and small business. “To me, that’s something to be proud of.”
