There was a board at the event where people could tell others why they formed teams and walked the track and stayed overnight at East Ridge High School in an effort to raise funds for the American Cancer Society. And a relative of this year’s honorary survivor told the crowd her reasons. (See the video.)

So why did you participate in the event this year? Whether you simply want to acknowledge someone or tell us your personal cancer story, let us know in the comments section.
