Relay for Life Champaign County

Posted:

CHAMPAIGN -- Over one thousand people joined together in the fight against cancer Saturday night at Champaign County's Relay for Life.

Beez Gordon is part of the crowd.  She's a ten-year kidney cancer survivor.

"It's just nice to know cancer isn't a death threat anymore," Gordon said.  "A lot of people survive."

But for those who didn't, they were being honored.  People were wearing t-shirts, holding signs and lighting candles to remember those lost from cancer.

Relay for Life is a 12-hour event.  Team members take turns walking around Centennial High School's track throughout the night.

Activities and food will be happening until the relay is over at 6 a.m. Sunday.
