Hundreds gathered Friday night at Sioux City's Memorial Field, to take a big step in the fight against cancer.
"And now I stand before you today and as of May 1st, my body was declared "clean" of cancer. I won, I survived," said Jenny Baylie, Cancer Survivor.
The American Cancer Society's Relay for Life is about raising money and awareness in the fight against cancer.
Part of that awareness, cancer can happen to anyone, but there are more survivors than ever before.
Friday night, the event's honorary survivor inspired hope.
"There should always be something there to fight for. There is hope, there is success, you just have to have the good attitude and you will succeed and beat cancer," said Jenny Baylie, Cancer Survivor.
Sixteen teams are taking part, as well as several individuals.
Luminary bags lined the track in honor of loved ones.
KTIV's own Kristie VerMulm emceed the ceremony.
The event is open until midnight for those that want to remember and respect those affected by cancer.
