Home Newsroom 158. 365BarringtonTV: Video Highlights from Barrington’s 2014 Relay for Life

An inspiring lineup of teams supporting local cancer survivors made this year’s Barrington Relay for Life a remarkable success.  According to the Relay for Life of Barrington website, 41 teams made up of 350 participants took part in this year’s Relay, raising over $165,000.  Relay chairwoman Eleanor Sweet McDonnell says, though the final numbers aren’t in yet, this year’s event will bring Barrington’s total Relay for Life funds raised over the past 17 years to $4.5 million, with $1.1 million raised since 2011.

About 1,000 people came out to take part in Barrington’s American Cancer Society Relay for Life.  There’s no doubt the beautiful weather played a part in the incredibly upbeat vibe at this year’s Relay, but Eleanor McDonnell says there was so much more than sunny skies at work.

“We have even more Barrington families going through cancer this year plus so many survivor success stories in our community.

According to the latest statistics, two out of every three people diagnosed in their lifetimes are now truly survivors. 

That means we are making progress with cancer research and are truly making incredible strides in finding a cure for cancer. 

There was a lot of hope, joy and happiness at this year’s Relay and the energy and euphoria levels were higher than I ever remember.”

If you missed this year’s Relay, we have your covered!

365BarringtonTV Reporter James Owen was there to capture highlights on camera plus the contagious energy present throughout the overnight event that brought cancer survivors, their supporters and the entire Barrington community together on Friday night.
