The 19th annual "Relay for Life" event will take place today in Rochelle at the Helms Athletic Complex. This year's theme is "1950's Cruisin for a Cure" as area residents raise money for the American Cancer Society.
Last year, more than $48,000 was raised with several hundred people involved in the Relay.
The opening ceremony begins at 1 this afternoon with activities scheduled until Midnight.
Some of the events include a Box Car Parade, a Live Auction, along with a dance contest.
A lumunary ceremony will take place at 9 this evening as we remember those individuals who have cancer and the people who have lost their battle with the disease.
That's the 19th annual "Relay for Life" event today between noon and midnight at the Helms Athletic Complex in Rochelle.
