CRESTVIEW — Downtown Crestview is looking a bit more purple today after volunteers with the American Cancer Society's local Relay For Life wrapped ribbons around lampposts.

Thirty-seven teams and 269 participants have raised more than $45,000 from yard sales and other benefits throughout the year.

But Friday is the main event, when Relay For Life brings food, fun and, above all, cancer awareness to North Okaloosa County.

Relay For Life begins at 6 p.m. Friday at Shoal River Middle School and ends at 6 a.m. the next day.
