TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – A community is banding together to help fight cancer.

Starting Saturday and going all through the night, runners and walkers join in on the 24th annual Relay for Life in Terre Haute.

The event, at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, started around 4 p.m. on Saturday.

All of the money raised for Relay for Life goes to cancer research – an important cause to many of the participants.

“Our goal is to raise awareness as well as funds to help people understand how to get well, how to stay well,” said Shannon Giles, American Cancer Society. “The more money we raise, the more research we can do, the more cures we can find. It’s all about fighting back and putting me out of a job.”

Relay for Life will run until 6 a.m. Sunday!
