BRIDGER VALLEY – Members from the 2012 Bridger Valley Relay For Life Committee attended the Annual Relay For Life Regional Summit is Salt Lake City, Utah, on Nov. 2-3.

While there, they attended sessions geared towards ways to continually improve Relay and how it works in the local community. There was also a lot of emphasis on “getting back to the basics,” meaning trying to go back to the beginning and remembering why everyone started Relaying in the first place. #1 reason - finding a cure for cancer. Along with the education, there were regional awards presented as well.

Uinta County received a banner for being third place in the per capita fundraising. Uinta County raised $70,000 in 2012, with $50,000 of that money coming from the Bridger Valley.

“This is an amazing accomplishment for our community,” Bridger Valley chair Jessica Parkyn said, “and a great step towards a world with less cancer and more birthdays.”
