Friday night, 126 teams and more than 1,500 participants continued the fight to find a cure for cancer.

Relay for Life activities in Houston County filled a track at the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter.

Festivities, including live entertainment, started well-ahead of the 6:30 opening ceremony.

The hope is that money raised will advance researchers steps closer to finding a way to fight the disease that affects so many.

Some walkers told us they're celebrating their own survival and courage, while others were walking either for loved ones lost, those still fighting, and those who conquered the disease.

This year's event raised more than $305,000 for the American Cancer Society's work.

Teams will keep it going throughout the night and finish Saturday morning.
