“What Relay for Life is, is just a walk,” said Pam Orr, a member of the Relay For Life with a Teton View organization. “It’s not a race, not running, it’s just a walk around the track.”
Orr said the closing ceremonies will be held at 10 p.m.
“What we require is one member from each team to be on the track at all times,” Orr said.
Orr said Relay for Life raises money to help cancer survivors.
“We have a survivor’s ceremony because we are all about our survivors because without them we wouldn’t have a reason to relay,” she said.
The event provides a special survivors lap, where all cancer survivors present at the event will celebrate their triumph over cancer while receiving encouragement and cheers from other participants, according to Relay for Life.
Orr said that each team raises funds by selling something such as food, a treat or raffle tickets.
“Our money goes to different programs, and it goes to research,” Orr said.
Orr said there will be many fun games and events for the community.
