Relay for Life draws many to Longbranch Park in Liverpool
Liverpool (WSYR-TV) – A Relay for Life event is taking place at Longbranch Park in Liverpool to raise money for cancer research.
The American Cancer Society is hosting the event from Friday night until 6 a.m. Saturday.
The event is a way for the community to honor those who have fought or are fighting cancer.
Teams consisting of family and friends raised awareness by camping and walking around a track in the park.
As the sun set, candles were lit in small hand-lettered bags known as Luminaries.
When they are lit, people pause to remember someone they knew or to celebrate someone getting through their cancer battle.
