AMARILLO -- The Amarillo Relay for Life Event is tonight at Amarillo High starting at 7 p.m.

Hundreds of participants come together to honor cancer survivors, their caregivers, and to pay tribute to those for whom the cure did not come soon enough. 

People take turns walking, running or otherwise circling around a track relay style to raise funds to fight cancer.  

One of the many highlights of the event is the luminaria ceremony, or candlelight vigil, held at nightfall to honor cancer survivors, caregivers, and to remember those lost to cancer.
