SALISBURY, Md - Relay for Life kicked off Friday night at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium in Salisbury. Event officials say around 1,000 people registered for the event.
Gwen Godwin of Mappsville, Va., said she just survived a case of cancer two months ago.
"It's a miracle," Godwin said. "It's really a blessing to be here with everybody else I mean it's a joy. No words can explain what you're feeling when you're here to see others that survived."
Jenny Palmer of Salisbury said her husband lost his fight with cancer a year ago, but she has vowed to continue to fight.
"My husband was one of the founding members of the event 19 years ago and he fought cancer for all 19 of those years. He lost his battle last year and I promised to keep fighting for him and I always will. We're going to find that cure."
Since 1985, Relay For Life has grown into a worldwide cause. Since it started it has raised more than $4 billion to fight for the cure for cancer.
