Vandegrift High School is hosting its forth Annual Relay for Life benefitting the American Cancer Society on Friday, April 4 from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. at Monroe Stadium. Each year, Vandegrift High School students rally the Four Points community to join the Vipers in the celebrating cancer survivors, remembering those who have lost to cancer, and joining those currently fighting against cancer. The whole community is invited to Relay for Life beginning with honoring the Survivors at 6 pm. There will be food, games, and live music throughout the evening. At dusk, they will remember those we have lost to cancer with the Luminaria ceremony. Relay closes to all other community members at 10:00 p.m., while registered Relay participants continue their relay until 2:00 a.m.
