Hundreds of cancer survivors, patients and well-wishers congregated at South Kitsap High School's Joe Knowles Field for the American Cancer Society's annual Relay For Life.

The event is the organization's signature public awareness and fundraising activity.

Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Relays are an overnight event, up to 24 hours in length.

Teams of people from all walks of life have fun while raising funds to fight cancer and call attention to cancer prevention and treatment.

Walkers began at 6 p.m. Friday and will keep walking until 6 p.m. Saturday
