Fundraising figures for the fourth annual Relay for Life in Stettler have been finalized — and are higher than projected.

“We officially raised $130,239.07,” Andrea DeYoung, who chaired the mid-June event, said in an interview Tuesday.

“It was a nice surprise.”

Early last week, DeYoung had estimated that the Stettler relay would raise $120,000.

“Considering the ratio of participants, we did very well with our fundraising,” DeYoung said.

This year’s event drew 28 teams and 255 participants.

The Stettler Relay for Life is scheduled again for June 2013 as part of a national Canadian Cancer Society fundraiser.
