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.

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.
