The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is an overnight community celebration where individuals and teams camp-out, barbecue, dance, and take turns walking around a track relay-style to raise funds to fight cancer. At nightfall, participants will light hundreds of luminaries around the track in a moving ceremony to honor cancer survivors, as well as friends and family members lost to the disease.
