BELCHERTOWN, Mass. (WWLP) – From six o’clock Friday evening until noon Saturday, the Belchertown High School track will be used to raise money for cancer in this year’s Relay for Life.

People are walking for family-members and friends who are battling cancer, and remembering lost loved ones.

The money raised during the event can be a lifeline to save lives from the dreaded disease. All money raised goes towards the American Cancer Society.
