PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. - The Relay For Life of Western Palm Beach County is upon us and volunteers are getting ready for the big event.
The event, centered around a track, is held annually at the South Florida Fairgrounds. It is meant to honor cancer survivors and remember those who lost their battle.
Danielle Loevin is a five-time cancer survivor who was first diagnosed when she was 16. This year she plans to walk with hundreds as they seek to find a cure for cancer.
Gates open Saturday, March 10 at 2 p.m. The opening ceremony starts at 3 p.m.
Survivors and caregivers will kick off the event with their ceremonial lap.
During the eight-hour event, teams will walk around the track, play games, watch performances and fundraise for the American Cancer Society.
