The event, sponsored by Relay For Life of Clay County, encourages all to wear purple during the day to remind all that cancer can strike anyone at anytime.
The proclamation stated, "Cancer has touched many Clay Countians, and we are survivors, we are caregivers, we are family members, and we are friends affected by cancer ... We hope this day that all Clay Countians will wear purple to support the fighters, admire the survivors, honor the taken, and never give up hope of finding a cure for cancer."
During April 26, several businesses in Clay County will offer special discounts for those coming in wearing purple.
Those without purple clothing should take note purple T-shirts are available currently. Anyone wishing to order a purple T-shirt may do so at The Brazil Times, A+ Printing, Mayor Wyndham's office, or by calling Carrol Evans at 442-0505 or Pat Krider at 448-2661 Ext. 1217 or 812-230-0244.
All T-shirt orders must be made and paid for by April 20 so there is enough time to print the shirts.
To celebrate Purple Day, the Northview High School and Purdue University bands will perform a free concert for the public in the Northview Auditorium Thursday, April 26.
