Relay For Life events held in eastern KY

For many people, this time of year is not just about getting a suntan or going on vacation...but fighting back against cancer.

The Pike County Relay for Life has been an annual tradition since 1993.

More than 60 teams including businesses, churches and other organizations come together to raise money for the American Cancer Society.

Some are fortunate enough to live through it.

More than 5,000 Relay For Life events take place across the country each year.

They raise an average of $75,000 each, while the one in Pikeville nearly doubles that on an annual basis.
