Thousands of people are expected to participate in the 3rd Donegal Relay for Life, which gets underway this evening at 6 o'clock in the grounds of LYIT.

Since the first relay in 2012, the event has become the premier Relay in Europe, and the biggest outside the US, raising over 600,000 euro since then.

With just over 50 teams this year compared to over 70 last year, Relay Chairperson Robert O'Connor says matching what was achieved in 2013 is not the primary goal this weekend.............
