Survivors, caregivers, friends, relatives and students will have a chance to relay all night April 29-30 in hope of raising awareness and funds for cancer research at the 8th annual Relay for Life event.

The Tri-city event will be held at Sachse High School this year. It will run from 6 p.m. to 5 a.m. The theme is Olympic Relay-One World, One Hope.

For the event, Wylie, Sachse and Murphy teams will relay in an organized, overnight, community fundraising walk. Participants can sign up as part of a team with team members taking turns walking around the track throughout the evening and early morning. Much like years past, a band will perform, speakers will be featured and, of course, there will be food, games and activities.
