UTICA- The American Cancer Society kicked off this year's Relay for Life Campaign.
The campaign raises money for research, and gives people the opportunity to remember loved ones who died from cancer.
The American Cancer Society estimates one out of every three people in the Unites States will be diagnosed with cancer.
"This year our theme is rock for the cure, so everything will have sort of a rock and roll basis," said Melanie Francis with the American Cancer Society. Francis says there will be lots of activities. "We'll have bands obviously out at the event, maybe a karaoke contest, or an air guitar championship competition, a lip sync battle."
The Relay for Life will be held on June 13th and 14th at MVCC.
