Hundreds of people laced up their shoes in Ashland today, all to raise money for a good cause.

Nearly 400 people have registered to take part in Relay for Life.

The 24 hour walk-a-thon is the American Cancer Society's biggest fundraiser.

So far, the relay in Ashland has raised nearly 38-thousand dollars.

"It's just incredible to see everyone pitch in and raise that much money."

"We are a small relay but we do not stop at anything to raise money."

"This year our theme is superheros because we are saving the world one cure at a time."

The walk also included several mini-activities including a frozen t-shirt contest, where participants had to melt a block of ice with nothing but body heat.

The walk will go on all night long and will end at 10 am Sunday.
