Relay for Life brings in hundreds

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds set up tents and walked around the Southridge High School Track to raise money for cancer research and prevention.

Team members tell us the event honors those who have been touched by cancer.

"You never know. I have kids, what if it happens to them. So, I just want to make sure that I do what I can because if I'm ever in that situation I want people to be there for me," participant Tasha Lamm.

Many of the teams were also formed by children from schools around the area. They tell us cancer knows no age or race.
