HUNDREDS of people will celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost and raise funds to fight back against the disease at this weekend's Ipswich Relay for Life.

More than 70 local teams will take part in the Cancer Council Queensland event, which will kick off at Jim Finimore Oval with the opening ceremony at 3pm tomorrow.

The ceremony will be followed by 18 hours of festivities, before the event closes at 9am Sunday.

Cancer Council Queensland spokeswoman Katie Clift said Relay For Life was an event where the community came together in an amazing show of strength, camaraderie and goodwill.
