Students in the Valley are gearing up to fight cancer, and they're doing it all night long.

Students at Mary Baldwin College in Staunton hosted their 10th annual Relay for Life Friday night. It started at 6 p.m. and will end Saturday morning.

It's a program that promotes cancer advocacy and education.

About 20 student volunteers helped organize this relay, and they hoped to raise about $25,000.

“We just want to have a successful event where everybody has fun and learn something. In all our events, we try to plan an advocacy message, so we just want everyone to walk away and learn something they didn't know walking into it,” said Event Organizer Stephanie Roush.

About 300 people plan to show up to Friday night's relay.
