Relay for Life committee held a meeting Monday to kick off another year and sign up teams for this year's Relay for Life event.

Relay for Life is scheduled for April 7 from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. At the Alice High School Practice Field. The survivor dinner will be from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.

“Despite the economic downfall, last year's event was very successful,” said Sarah Frazier, American Cancer Society Community Manager for Relay for Life. “Last year, the event raised $43,602.77, had 20 teams registered, 272 participants registered and 74 survivors registered.

The goal this year is $40,000.

Relay for Life will be merging with Duval County this year, according to Frazier.
