The first of four summer Relay for Life events starts at 7 p.m. today at the Goddard High School gym.
During the relay, teams spend the night walking around the track. Proceeds from the events benefit the American Cancer Society.
Registration costs $10 a person, and each participant is asked to raise a minimum of $100 to receive an event T-shirt.
Community members are invited to attend the survivor lap during the opening ceremony of each event and the luminaria ceremony at sundown to honor cancer survivors and caregivers and to remember the dead.
Other upcoming area Relay for Life events include:
6 p.m. July 15 at Cessna Stadium at Wichita State University
7 p.m. Aug. 5 at Derby Middle School
7 p.m. Aug. 5 at Maize South High School
