Relay for Life

Last Saturday's Relay for Life at Downey Adult School raised more than $75,000 for the American Cancer Society, organizers said. The amount was down from last year, when more than $100,000 was raised, "but that's to be expected with today's economy," said adult school Principal Roger Brossmer. (By comparison, the city of Long Beach, with five times as many residents as Downey, raised $77,000 at their Relay for Life held June 7.)
