Organizers with the 2013 Lake County Relay for Life reported that the weekend's event raised about $55,000 in donations for the American Cancer Society.
Due to rainy conditions on Saturday, the Relay for Life was moved indoors to the Lake County 4-H Exhibit Hall at the county fairgrounds in south Madison.
The participants in the fund-raiser walked their laps and the other scheduled entertainment was held inside the building.
Nancy Miller, the 2013 honorary survivor, and her family led the survivors' relay lap during the opening ceremony that started at 5:30 p.m. At the end of that ceremony, the participants stepped outside to perform a balloon release.
Fifteen teams were credited with raising the funds. The team from East River Electric Power Cooperative provided the largest team total of about $8,400.
Two other teams with large fund-raising amounts were the Remarkable Pink Ladies with about $6,400 and St. John Lutheran Church in Ramona with about $5,500.
Receiving credit as the 2013 Relay's top individual fund-raising volunteers were Joanne Cross, Janis Dailing and Joan Merager, all of Madison.
The organizers announced that volunteers with 12 teams at Dakota State University raised about $5,200 earlier this year during their DSU Kickin' Cancer Event held. The supporters of the 2013 Daffodil Days for Lake, Miner and McCook counties were credited with raising about $4,800.
Crystal Pauli of Madison was awarded this year's Shining Star Award for her volunteer work.
