Held on Henderson State University’s Quad, the occasion brought in an amount of $54,084.75.
“We are especially appreciative of HSU working with us and being so accommodating,” said Nicole McGough. “They were wonderful.”
The money is a major increase from Relays past. For 2014, 2015, and 2016, the earnings were $46,972, $46,400, and $51,049, respectively.
There is still time to reach the organization’s goal of $60,000. Donations will be accepted until Thursday, Aug. 31.
