06/23-24/2017 FRI/SAT - Relay 4 Life - Normal/61761
Normal Community High School
The weather was great highs in the mid 70's with NO rain. We had a great time posing for pictures and putting smiles on kids of all ages. The attendance for this event was smaller than years past but the committee is working hard to return this to the large scale this event has been known for.

We had 3 Grand Club members this year Barry Benecke 523 $6,510.35, Jeremy Wilcox 7503 $1,260.00 & Tom Durbin 9293 $1,150.00. Way to go!!
At midnight 8/31 the books were closed on McLean County Relay for Life 2017 so these are the final totals.


Imperial Walkers direct funds raised $10,122.46
Total raised by all teams $300,786.47
Total charity hours 348

Over the 13 McLean County Relay for Life events that team Imperial Walkers has done, we have raised over $75,000 for cancer research! We have been there every year since 2005. I remember that well, as that is the year I lost my mom to cancer. I joined team Imperial Walkers shortly after losing my mom, and 28 days later, attended my first Relay for Life.

This is the 2nd time Team Imperial Walkers has raised over $10,000. The other year was 2014, the teams 10th RFL event, we raised $11,506.31 that year. It is an honor to be a part of this team!!
