Relay for Life bringing awareness to cancer

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (March 26, 2012) -- Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease.

At Relay, teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path.

Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours in length. Relayers do not have to walk all night, but each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event.

THV's Tom Brannon spoke to American Cancer Society volunteer Elizabeth Fortune about her own personal battle with cancer and why she is participating in Relay for Life. Click on the video link!

Today's THV has partnered with American Cancer Society for their Relay For Life events:
