2009 was a record setting year for Relay For Life in Ramsey County.

Now organizers have high hopes for this year.

They raised more than 1-hundred 25 thousand dollars last year...

That's 11 dollars and 22 cents per capita.

They also won the national award for their population size.

They are hoping to raise even more money this year.

Last year 32 teams participated, and organizers are hoping for 40 this year.

They have a big kick off planned for tomorrow night.

Tara Rogness: "we're hoping to get lots of people there. Some people that haven't been involved in relay, we're inviting them to come out and learn more about the event."

The event was scheduled for tomorrow night...but was postponed to February 13 because of the snow.
