Relay for Life participants will be getting some extra sleep in preparation for the 2008 Relay for Life in Swift Current.

"Things are coming along really well. We are still in need of someone to come out and do some electrical for us if they can," explained Susan Penner with the Cancer Society.

This 12-hour event features teams of 10 people taking turns walking around the Southside track.

Penner says registration is up from last year.

"We have 24 teams registered in Swift Current this year. We were only anticipating 20 teams, so we are very pleased with the public response as far as the teams go."

With numbers up for registered teams, numbers are slightly down for the survivor's registered.

"We have 80 survivors registered, and that is down from last year. We had probably about 120 last year, but there is still people coming in to register, so we are expecting around 100 survivors."

The opening ceremony start at 7 p.m., on Friday with a supper beginning at 5 p.m.

Luminary bags and pledges are still available. All pledges can be dropped of with a team member or at the Cancer Society office.

The Cancer Society hopes to raise $45,000 through the Relay for Life.
