Relay For Life is an overnight team event that provides a way for communities to take up the fight against cancer.  Teams are formed through businesses, schools, churches, neighborhoods and civic organizations, and they are often formed to rally around a family member, friend, or co-worker who is fighting or has lost their battle with cancer. Members of teams take turns walking the track throughout the night to symbolize that cancer does not sleep and that our community will not rest until a cure is discovered. We invite the entire Polk County population to stop by and see what we're all about!
