Overnight Relay for Life reminds us ‘cancer never sleeps’

TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) – Help fight back against cancer with every step you take at the Relay for Life of Tippecanoe County.

The overnight fundraising walk helps raise money for the American Cancer Society, as well as honors those who lost their battle with the disease.

Relay for Life specialist Hannah Cook appeared on News 18 This Morning and said, “We have a lot of people that participate. We have about 300 survivors that come every year. Our attendance is about 1,200 to 1,400 people.”

This year, the organization has set a fundraising goal of $240,000.

You can register at the event or online. You can walk either as a team or an individual.

Relay for Life runs from 7 p.m. Friday to 7 a.m. Saturday at Jeff High School, 1801 S. 18th St. in Lafayette. There will be a luminaria lighting ceremony at 10 p.m. to remember those who died.
