Jay Barrett/KMXT

The 24-hour-long Relay for Life wrapped up at 6:30 Saturday evening but the memories live on. One of the Relay’s organizers, Pam Foreman, looks back on the Relay’s highlights with KMXT’s Jay Barrett.

Relay for Life event chair Mandy Clark said the preliminary total of $59,800 will grow after more pledge forms are turned in. One event, called the "Quarter Mile," where quarters are lined up edge-to-edge around the quarter-mile-long track, collected about 12,000 quarters, worth about $3,000.
