By Gary Lloyd

TRUSSVILLE — The Relay for Life of East Jefferson event is scheduled for Friday, April 25 from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. the next day at the Trussville Youth Football Field in the Trussville Sports Complex.

Relay for Life is an event that raises funds to fight cancer and a chance to honor cancer survivors and remember loved ones lost. Special moments during a typical Relay for Life event include a luminaria ceremony, a fight back ceremony and a survivors lap.
