‘We’re in it to win it’: Relay For Life is making strides against cancer | Kitsap Week

On the day of Relay For Life, a village of hope springs up, with booths, tents and a community of people who walk the track day and night. The event starts with a survivors’ lap. When the sun sets, lighted luminarias line the track, each in honor of someone who is battling or has battled cancer.                    - Relay For Life
