The American Cancer Society Relay for Life Riverbend is coming Saturday at the East Alton - Wood River High School track.   Relay For Life is the world's largest fundraising event that takes aim at all types of cancers.  The annual event starts at 11am and goes for 12 hours, wrapping up tomorrow at 11:00pm.

Relay for Life co-lead David Watts tells The Big Z they have moved the event from an overnight festival to a daytime one.
