HOWARD COUNTY - Relay for Life is raising money in Howard and Glasscock Counties.
This year's goal is to raise $220,000.
Relay for Life is the main volunteer-driven fundraising event for the American Cancer Society.
Many of the volunteers know someone who has cancer or they've battled it themselves.
"Why do I relay because my husband had cancer and is a 31 year cancer survivor and I got involved with the American Cancer Society board shortly after he was cured from cancer. I think this community embraces it so well because we have all been affected by this disease in some way or another," Relay for Life Co-Chair, Diane Wood, said.
The Relay for Life event starts Friday at six and ends Saturday morning.
