“We are at great gratitude for all your hard work, for making these events happen,” she told volunteers who gathered in the Relay for Life office in Fort Walton Beach.

Relay for Life is a worldwide annual event that calls for people to spend a night walking or running around a track to raise money for cancer survivors and research.

All the chairs of the local events said they saw increased participation in 2012 and hope to see even more in 2013.

“Let’s beat this cancer, right?” Miller said at the end of the news conference. “And raise some money.”
