SHELTON (Video) — It’s that special time of year,  Shelton Relay for Life team members will be back walking around Kneeland Park in downtown Shelton this Saturday.

Relay for Life raises money to help the American Cancer Society make a global impact on cancer.

The event remembers loved ones lost, while honoring survivors and their caregivers.

17 teams participated in last years’ event raising more than $18,000 for the American Cancer Society.

The theme for this years event is “No Place Like Hope ”  featuring live music along with food vendors and fun activities for all ages.

The event concludes with a Luminaria Ceremony honoring loved ones lost, and those still fighting the disease.

Shelton Relay For Life co-founders Gerry Apple and Dave Hauge spoke with iFIBER One News Radio’s Jeff Slakey about the importance of the event.

Relay for life will run for 12 hours starting at 11 a.m.
