The 24-hour Relay for Life is this weekend, and event organizer C.J. Smith says teams have been having some trouble raising money for the American Cancer Society this year.
People on teams will take turns running or walking around the track for 24 straight hours. She says they´re hoping to raise $165,000 this year to fight cancer. The relay starts after the opening ceremonies at 12:30 on Saturday at Sonora High School football field. A Calaveras Relay for Life event is planned for Saturday in Angels Camp as well.
