20th Annual Relay For Life

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) - The 20th annual Relay For Life is going on Friday night across the country, and in Black Hawk County.

The walk for the American Cancer Society celebrates survivors and honors the memories of those lost. Organizers say they were amazed at the record turnout despite the floods and recession. They say the event is about supporting one another.

"It's a very emotional time for a lot of people because they're surrounded by a lot of others who've been through the same experiences. They get to share the same stories with other people. A lot of life long friends are made, people that just see each other every year at relay," said Lisa Kremer, Relay for Life Co-Chair.

Relay for life also tries to get out the message of what the American Cancer Society has to offer.
