Relay For Life Exceeds Expectations

Thayer County Relay For Life exceeded its expectations Friday by selling approximately 1,300 luminaries and collecting approximately $49,000. Eleven teams participated in and celebrated fighting back against cancer.

Thayer County held its annual Relay For Life fundraiser Friday night despite a 106 degree “feels like” temperature. The event, which has been held in Deshler the past couple of years, was moved back to Hebron and held at the Thayer Central High School track. Hebron mayor Shane Day welcomed the 11 teams prior to the traditional opening ceremony.
