Search For A Cure: 24-Hour Relay For Life Kicks Off In West Sacramento

WEST SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life kicked off Saturday morning in West Sacramento.

It’s a life changing event to celebrate the lives of cancer survivors, remember those who lost the battle, and an effort to fight back against the disease.

Participants form a team and take turns walking laps for 24 consecutive hours, inspiring hope that a cure will someday be found.

“It means hope. It’s where we come together as a community. We bring everybody together, and we show them there’s hope out there; that we can fight this disease, and one day we will finish that fight. And, nobody will have to hear the words ‘you have cancer,’ ” said Relay For Life Event Chair Cathy Kingsbury.

The American Cancer Society is celebrating its 100th anniversary of searching for a cure for cancer.
