Relay for Life participants walk to fight cancer

Posted: Updated:

Relay for Life wrapped up early Saturday morning at Coronado High School. Teams walked all night around the school gym. The event honors cancer survivors and those who lost their battle.

Leigh Giddings and her family to fight cancer. The cause hits close to home for Giddings. She has been cancer free for 18 months.

"So anyone else's kids don't have to do this. So anyone's parents and grandparents don't have to know what cancer is. It would be great if there was a world with no cancer," said Giddings.

"We walk all night because cancer doesn't sleep," explained Miranda Cherry, Relay for Life Co-Chair. She says 51 teams signed up to walk, which is more than organizers say participated last year.

Relay for Life raises money for the American Cancer Society.
