Hundreds of people are setting up tents, displays and musical equipment on Saturday to get ready for Southold Town's Relay for Life beginning at 5 p.m. and ending at 6 a.m. The main event to raise money for the American Cancer Society is an overnight walk, where members of relay teams walk for as long as they can around the track of the park. Bands will entertain the teams with live music, food will be served and retailers have the chance to sell their products at vendor booths.
If you are participating in the relay, who will you be thinking about? Are you a cancer survivor? Do you have close relatives who battled cancer and won, or will you be remembering someone you lost to the disease?
Feel free to share your story in the comment boxes below and stay tuned for coverage of the moving event later on North Fork Patch.
