The Great Yarmouth Relay for Life aims to bring together as many people as possible for up to 24 hours to celebrate the lives of those who have survived cancer and remember those who may not have been so fortunate.
The event is now the world's largest simultaneous fundraising event held in 22 countries.

So far 13 teams have registered in the event and members are already busy fundraising in the build-up to the relay when they will take it in turns to keep a stream of people walking around the track for more than 20 hours.
The event kicks off with a lap of honour by cancer survivors and other activities include live bands, singing, dancing and martial arts displays, and five-a-side football, Pilates classes, face painting and lots of games and stalls.
