Photo gallery: Carson City Relay for Life raises funds for cancer research

The Relay for Life movement began in the mid-1980s when Dr. Gordy Klatt covered 83 miles in 24 hours and supporters donated funds to join him for a time during his extended trek around a track in Tacoma, Wash. In 1986, teams there joined in and $33,000 was raised. Since then, billions have been raised to combat cancer via events in communities spanning 20 countries.
