ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, Va. (WHSV) -- Organizers for Relay For Life, an event at the Rockingham County Fair venue, are sharing how much money they've raised for cancer research.
So far, organizers said people have raised $340,000. Hundreds of survivors and thousands of caregivers and supporters walked to support cancer research on Friday.
Organizers say the fundraising number could grow by at least $30,000 more. People who have fought cancer said any help is a lot.
"You don't have to do a lot. You know, just giving back a little makes you feel special. Because you're giving back what everybody has tried giving to you," said Dawn Thomas, a survivor.
Relay For Life will release the total amount of money raised after some teams turn in their fundraising money.
