West Polk County Relay for Life is an overnight, community-led, non-athletic event. Teams set up camp and take turns walking around the campus mall from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. The teams raise money in the months leading up to the event and on the day create a party atmosphere for the whole community.  Everyone is invited to celebrate the lives of those who have been touched by cancer and to show their support of West Polk County's vital work.
