The total raised by all 21 teams is $43,652.83 and Vickie Marrelli raised $5,925, the most for an individual.
â¢ Emerald City/Salute to Joe won the award for best camp, most team money raised and individual with most money raised.
â¢ Teams were down from 32 to 21, however, this year's relay raised nearly the same amount of money as last year.
â¢ Four teams were inadvertently left out of the pre-event insert in the newspaper, they are: A Salute to Joe (family team), Carbon Emery Board of Realtors, Judi Bishop's honor to Bonnie Robertson and the McGinnis family and friends joined Questar/Bucyrus
â¢ Next year's theme will be "Back to the Future."
â¢ It's never to early to sign up for next year. Any future team registering before Aug. 31 will be able to register for $50 instead of $100.
