There are 39 teams and 343 participants helping to raise more than $120,000 for the fight against cancer. The running total was $56,289 early Friday.

Hope under the Big Top is this year’s American Cancer Society theme. The event begins at 6 p.m. with entertainment, the Celebration Ceremony featuring the survivor’s lap and at 8:30 the luminaries are lit with the ceremony beginning at 9 p.m.
