It's an annual event in Clinton and DeWitt County that draws dozens of advocates working for a common cause.
The Relay For Life in DeWitt County at Clinton High School is what American Cancer Society Representative Whitney Stoolman calls "something that can only be experienced". She says the 12 straight hour event is symbolic of the fact cancer never sleeps, so neither do their participants.
The first lap honors cancer survivors. The luminary ceremony honors someone who has battled cancer and Stoolman says the fight back portion brings to light the various aspects of cancer and advocacy among many other things.
Relay For Life teams for the June 4 event are being formed. Teams can take on a number of ways to fundraise and Stoolman indicates they get several teams in the area that participate.
