WVU's Relay for Life to Kick Off Friday

Posted: Updated:

West Virginia University's "Relay for Life" will kick off Friday at 7 p.m. at the WVU track.

The annual event raises thousands to help cancer research.

In past few years, the university has raised over $90,000. This year they hope to finally break the century mark.

The event is open to the public and organizers are urging everyone to come out and support the fight against cancer.

"Everyone has been affected by cancer in some way or another, and it's just a really great way to give back and honor those who have been through cancer, to celebrate the survivors of cancer and remember the loved ones lost," said Ashley Greer, event director.

The Relay begins at 7 p.m. on Friday and ends Saturday at 7 a.m.
