Talking a selfie at Relay for Life

A participant takes a selfie at the 2019 Talladega County Relay for Life at J. Craig Smith Community Center in Sylacauga. 

SYLACAUGA -- The 2019 Talladega County Relay for Life was Friday at Sylacauga’s J. Craig Smith Community Center.

The Relay for Life event has combined North and South Talladega County because in recent years participation, sponsorships and funds have dropped off. This year’s goal for the county was $50,000.

Relay for Life is a team fundraising cancer walk event where team members take turns walking around a track or designated path.
