Nelson County, VA
If you were out driving Saturday morning around 11AM you probably noticed the caravan of trucks headed across the county. It was part of the Relay For Life Of Nelson Trucking Against Cancer Parade. The event is a prelude fundraiser leading up to the main RFL event next month in Lovingston.

The parade began at Tye River Truck Stop and ended up in Schuyler for a picnic.

The team raised money by placing banners, remembering or honoring someone affected by cancer, on the front of the trucks. Each banner raised $125.00 with proceeds benefitting the American Cancer Society.

A similar event, Annual Truckers United Against Cancer Parade, will take place later this month on April 28th. For clarification purposes, The Giving Hope Foundation holding the event on 4.28.12 has no affiliation with the Nelson Relay For Life or the American Cancer Society.
