Lewis County Relay For Life hosted a kickoff event at the Elks Lodge in Lowville Monday night.
The group has 13 teams ready to walk this summer in the fight against cancer.
They're looking for more teams to earn money for cancer research and treatment.
"Our goal is to raise every dollar that we can," the American Cancer Society's Don Boshart said. "Last year we raised $74,000 and we'd love to do the same this year."
