Guam - Head down to the George Washington track to show your support for the 2014 Relay for Life event. Every year thousands gather to encourage those afflicted with cancer to finish the fight and continue pushing forward.

Committee chair John Rios said, "The Relay for Life event here on Guam is really a gathering of the community really to celebrate our VIPs, which are the cancer survivors right so we have so many of them here that are registered to participate tonight here at the GW Field."  


Rios says the Relay for Life is about remembering those who lost their battle to cancer. Over 70 teams and 600 participants have signed up for the event as of last night. The opening ceremony will begin at 7 pm tonight and the event will continue until 7am Saturday. The community is encouraged to participate and walk a lap around the GW track in support of the fight.
