About ACS Relay For Life:

The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life is an overnight community celebration where individuals and teams camp out, barbecue, dance, and take turns walking or running around a track “relay” style to raise funds to fight cancer. At nightfall, participants will light hundreds of luminaria candles around the track in a moving ceremony to honor cancer survivors as well as friends and family members lost to the disease. Funds raised support cancer research, education, advocacy, and patient services in the community.  This year’s event is May 16-17 @ WAHS.
