(STURGIS) – A big crowd is expected to be at the Sturgis High School track and football fields Friday and Saturday.

It's not for a football game or a track meet. Instead it's the annual American Cancer Society's Relay For Life. The event raises funds that go towards research of cancer treatments in hopes of finding a cure for the disease.

Event Chairperson Steve Lyons and volunteer Holly Gushwa says there is a lot of fun activities planned for the 24 hour event, but ultimately, the Relay For Life is all about cancer survivors. ...... {LISTEN}.

Gushwa is a cancer survivor. She says she didn't like to talk about her battle with cancer, but because of a friend, she got involved with Relay For Life and now likes to share her survivor’s story. ...... {LISTEN}.

The public is invited to come out and cheer on family and friends who will be walking. They can also be part of the many activities that will be going on during the 24 hours, including the survivor's lap, the luminaria, the dunk tank and an auction.
