Join in the effort to fight cancer 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 23 when the American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Chandler hosts its kickoff rally. Event volunteers and participants will hear from cancer survivors who have benefitted from the fund-raising efforts.

The event will take place at the Ocotillo Golf Club ballroom, 3751 S. Clubhouse Drive, Chandler.

Chandler’s Relay for Life, one of the biggest in the state, will be held May 3 at Basha High School, 5990 S. Val Vista Drive. Registration opens at the kickoff rally.

Relay For Life began in 1985 with one man who walked and ran around a track for 24 hours and raised $27,000 for the American Cancer Society. This year, Relay For Life will take place in nearly 5,100 communities in the United States and 20 other countries, a news release states.
