Posted: Updated:

SELAH, Wash.-- The Selah branch of the American Cancer Society is having it's 4th annual Relay for Life.

It's at Selah Junior High School and goes until noon Sunday.
 
The 24 hour event is raising money for cancer awareness and research.

So far they've raised more than $30,000.
 
Many cancer survivors were there for the first lap today and say it's great to see so much being done to fight the disease.

"To me it's the best thing ever," said cancer survivor and event organizer Jamie Cravy. "This is the reason why there's all these purple shirts out here. American Cancer Society is why we're here."

Organizers say they're hoping to raise even more money throughout the night.
 
There's food, games, and live music to keep the walkers and runners going.

The party runs all night so you can visit and enjoy throughout Saturday night.
