Santa Clarita Valley’s Relay for Life  participants started their walk to beating cancer Saturday morning. So far there are 136 teams with 1,566 participants who have raised $294,378 to help fund cancer research to “put the American Cancer Society  out of business.” The walk started at 10:30am with the Survivor’s Walk  after the Opening Ceremony. Throughout the day, hundreds of people have come to walk in support of loved ones or themselves. Locals gathered at this inspiring event to celebrate the lives of survivors, and remember those who were lost. Participants showed great motivation to fight back against this terrible disease whether they knew someone with cancer or not. Saturday's event contributed to the success of this global movement which is raising more than four billion dollars to fight cancer. Central Park, off of Bouquet Canyon Road, provided a great setting for this Relay for Life event with plenty of space for the over 1,000 participants that walked.
