The Relay For Life movement unites communities across the globe to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action to finish the fight once and for all. Relay For Life events are community events where teams and individuals camp out at a school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team has at least one participant on the track at all times and raises funds for the American Cancer Society in the months leading up to the event.

The community is invited and encouraged to attend. A dinner to honor survivors and caregivers will be held at 5:00 p.m. before Relay.
