Local cancer survivors and families gathered together Friday evening to remember those who were lost and celebrate life at the annual Stark County Relay for Life walk.

Hundreds gathered for the walk. First the cancer survivors did a lap around the track outside of Dickinson High School, followed by a lap with family and friends.

Sharon Wallace dressed up as the Purple Monster Cancer Eater to show her support for the fight against cancer. She says she believes events like these are beneficial for everyone involved.

At least 80 percent of the money raised for the event goes directly to cancer, including research and other local entities that help those fight against it.
