- Head to the Goshen High School track and take a walk alongside cancer survivors, caregivers, volunteers, and community members.

Dozens of teams and individuals, many of them living with cancer or who know someone affected by the disease, walked throughout the park to show their support for survivors.

They will unite at noon on Saturday, June 10 (rain or shine), for the annual American Cancer Society Relay for Life in an effort to free the world from the pain and suffering of cancer.

According to Amy Collins, a creative director with the five-person film crew that was on hand, the Greene County Relay for Life was one of only four Relay events nationwide to be chosen for the filming.

All proceeds went towards the American Cancer Society. The ceremony is followed by the survivor lap, a lap for all cancer survivors and people now being affected by cancer. We are a family with the simple goal of raising as much money as we can. And without these people's help, we would not be almost as far as we are, today.

Scenes from this year's event were captured by a film crew for a national promotional video for the American Cancer Society. "That's a lot. And that's because these people work their tail off at relay to get money to raise money for cancer and for cancer research".
