The American Cancer Society's Relay For Life of Batavia will take place noon to midnight on Saturday, July 9 at Vandetta Stadium, 120 Richmond Ave.
The event is an opportunity for the community to help the American Cancer Society create a world with less cancer and more birthdays by helping people stay well, by helping people get well, by finding cures and by fighting back.
Individuals and teams camp out, eat, dance and take turns walking or running around a track “relay” style to raise funds to fight cancer. At nightfall, participants light hundreds of luminaria candles around the track in a touching ceremony honoring cancer survivors as well as paying tribute to those lost to the disease.
