As the survivors walk, other participants will cheer them on in a demonstration of support and celebration.

The Relay For Life of Holmes County is a community event where teams and individuals come together to honor, celebrate and raise funds and awareness in an effort to free the world from the pain and suffering of cancer. Money raised will help the American Cancer Society provide free information and support for people facing the disease today, and fund cancer research that will help protect future generations.

Founded by Dr. Gordy Klatt in Washington in 1985, the Relay For Life movement is the world's largest fundraising event to save lives from cancer. Uniting communities across the globe, we celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost and take action for lifesaving change. During Relay For Life events, members of each team take turns walking or running around the track or path. Teams participate in fundraising in the months leading up to the event.

If you are a cancer survivor or caregiver and would like to be part of the Relay For Life event, visit RelayForLife.org/HolmesCounty, or call the American Cancer Society at 330-517-2069.
