Cancer fighters and survivors will unite for the Relay For Life of Auglaize County from 6 p.m. Friday to noon on Saturday at the Auglaize County Fairgrounds.

This year’s Relay For Life, a fundraising event of the American Cancer Society, will incorporate the theme “Game On to Fight Cancer,” Relay For Life specialist Sarah Burke said.  

The events will begin with an opening ceremony at 6 p.m. with cancer fighters sharing their accomplishments and progress stories, followed by the Survivor Lap at 6:15 p.m.

“We welcome anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer to walk a lap in celebration of their survivorship,” Burke said about the Survivor Lap.
