Relay for Life to mark Island's fight against cancer

Cancer survivors and fundraisers will join forces this weekend in a bid to raise money and awareness for the fight against cancer.
 
The seventh Relay for Life is taking place at the NSC in Douglas - it will see more than 50 teams take part in a walking relay over 24 hours. 
 
Proceedings will begin with a lap of honour for survivors of the disease - this will be followed by the relay, family entertainment and a Candle of Hope ceremony at dusk.
