EDGAR COUNTY, Ill. (WTHI) - Folks in Edgar County, Illinois laced up their sneakers to raise money and awareness.
Many gathered for the Edgar County Relay for Life Saturday.
The event raises money for the American Cancer Society.
Those at the race got the chance to honor survivors and remember those who have lost their battle with cancer.
There was also food and a silent auction.
Organizers said it's great to see the community support for all of those impacted by cancer.
"When we see survivors that come back out and take part in this, and walk through survivor lap, that's just a great feeling," said Tony Holly with the American Cancer Society.
The goal is to raise $37,000 by September 3rd.
