On Thursday evening members of the community gathered at Fusion Fitness in Lynn Haven to celebrate the start of the fundraising season for Relay for Life.
What is Relay for Life? Carie Wailgum of the American Cancer Society explains that "Relay for Life is an overnight event where teams, survivors, and caregivers in the community come together and walk in support of cancer survivors and raise funds for research".
The Panama City relay event will be held at Tommy Oliver Stadium on May 2nd and 3rd. The goal is to have at least 60 teams participate and raise more than $150,000.
