Ligonier Relay for Life- AV Team a Success!

It was a rainy weekend in the Ligonier Valley, but that didn't stop hundreds of people from flocking to Weller Field for the annual Relay for Life.

The Theme this year called for each team to choose a Holiday then dress up and decorate their booths accordingly. Antiochian Village chose "The First Day of Hunting Season" with the slogan "Hunting for a Cure."

Donning orange hunting vest or fuzzy antlers, the AV team took the team lap on Friday, and then stood along the side of the track and cheered alongside the other teams for the survivor's lap.

AV's booth offered a rubberband-gun shooting range with little deer, each with the name of a different cancer. Winners were awarded a deer-shaped cooked made by Darci... and many contestants came back repeatedly for the sweets.

AV's team successfully raised over $1500 this year. Last year the Ligonier Valley Relay for Life was the 2nd highest per-capita fund-raising' Relay' in the nation.
