Lawton_The annual "Relay for Life" began Friday night at Ron Stephens Stadium, with lots of food, games and music all to support the American Cancer Society.
The event kicked off with a survivors' lap to celebrate, remember and fight back against cancer. Hundreds of people pledged to walk or run laps until 7am Saturday, all in support of helping those affected by cancer each day.
"The American Cancer Society was wonderful to me helping me through with the 'Look Good, Feel Good' sessions and just giving me a lot of information that I needed," said Dana Moore, cancer survivor.
Organizers hope to raise more than $100,000 this year. At last check, they had raised close to $70,000.
