Warren County Relay For Life has logged another successful year with an early total of $165,000 raised to benefit the American Cancer Society in the fight against cancer. Relay faithful added another $57,000 at Nunley Stadium on Friday night to the $108,000 collected prior to the annual extravaganza.Event chairman Dwight Burch commended the efforts and lauded the $1 million milestone achieved locally by Relay For Life in its ninth year.As an example of how widespread the Relay phenomenon really is, Relay team members from as far away as Indiana and the Chicago/ Lafayette, Ill., area made their way to Warren County to join with their relatives in the local event. The Bouldin Friends and Family team, which included Maryann Schaper, Susie Bending and Jessica Spec, were on hand to support their family.“We’ve had several family members affected,” said Schaper.
