The Relay will begin at noon with a lap run by cancer survivors as well as those currently fighting against their cancer. Other events at the Relay include various fundraisers by teams, a Luminaria Ceremony that takes place after sundown, and a "Fight Back" Ceremony where participants are challenged to take a pledge of action that will change their lifestyle for the better.
Florissant Valley's radio station, KCFV-FM 89.5 The Wave, will also be broadcasting live from the Relay For Life event.
