The American Cancer Association's Relay For Life took over the valley Friday evening.

This time, it was Williamstown's turn raising money to help find a cure.

People made their way to Tomlinson Park walking around to remember and honor loved ones that lost or survived cancer.

Participants got to enjoy live entertainment, food and most importantly, help the fight against cancer.

For Williamstown, it's their ninth year putting on the Relay For Life Walk.

"It was scary. You didn't know how long you're going to have to take treatment or nothing til they went in and done the diagnosis and told you. Wasn't too bad after that," says Glen Jones, cancer survivor of 5 years.

"I got through the surgery and radiation and I didn't have to do chemo. For me, it was not too bad," added Karen Felton, cancer survivor of 15 years.

The Relay For Life of Williamstown collected over $35,000.

Road To Recovery and Reach To Recovery are among the programs from the American Cancer Society that all the donations will help benefit.
