The Relay for Life is raising cancer awareness in Fayette County Saturday at the Oak Hill High School football stadium.
The event began at noon will go on until midnight on Saturday. The event is being held to raise money to fight cancer and show support for those who are battling the disease. A variety of vendors took part in the event which is known for the up-beat tone of its participants.
"We're here today in honor of everybody with cancer whether they have passed or whether they are currently fighting it or whether they have beat it and we're here honoring all of them today" said Jack McClung.
The event continues Saturday night with a candle-light walk around the track.
