Organizers of the Billings Relay for Life event said Friday they will not have the fundraising event at West High in July because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The event was scheduled for July 10 at Billings West High School.

Organizers are looking for ways to still celebrate survivors and raise money to help find a cure for cancer. More information will be shared when plans are firmed up. The annual event is one of the signature summer events in Billings. It includes a Survivor dinner and a Survivor lap.

The Billings event is one of the largest in the country in terms of fundraising totals for the American Cancer Society.
