The field next to Wayland's Claypit Hill School filled with enthusiastic walkers of all ages Saturday evening as the seventh annual American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Weston-Wayland got underway.
Organizers expected more than 400 people to participate during the 12-hour event that brings teams together for an overnight relay during which at least one team members walk the track at all times.
Organizer Julie Rauseo said the Weston-Wayland Relay for Life goal was to raise $57,000 for cancer research. When the event kicked off Saturday evening, more than $17,000 had already been collected and participants have until August to continue raising money.
The Weston-Wayland Relay for Life event is just one of more than 95 Relay for Life events scheduled across Massachusetts this year.
