Relay for Life has hundreds camping out in Wausau

Posted:
WAUSAU (WAOW) -

Hundreds of people are camping outside in Wausau tonight. It's the city's 17th annual Relay for Life.

Organizers say they hope to raise more than $170,000 and it goes toward cancer research.

The all-night camp out has people staying up, trying to raise as much money as they can.

"We start with a survivor lap and then we do an illumination to remember those who we have lost or are still struggling," American Cancer Society leader Laural Harder said.

The event runs through nine tomorrow morning. Organizers say you can donate to Relay for Life through August.
