The annual Relay for Life wrapped up Saturday in Belpre and Parkersburg.

In Belpre, 66 teams helped raise money for the American Cancer Society.

Teams came from churches, elementary schools and businesses.

Volunteers say the idea is to celebrate those who beat cancer.

Total proceeds topped-off around $150,000.

A rainy Friday night as well across the river at City Park.

That kept everybody inside.

But even a little severe weather didn't stop more than 80 teams from showing up and participating.
