JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – Several students from Johns Creek High School have banded together to form a Relay for Life team called “Lifesavers.”

Twin sisters Jessica and Elizabeth Maksimik have formed a team with six of their friends to participate at this year’s American Cancer Society Relay for Life Johns Creek.

The event will be at Taylor Road Middle School from 6 p.m. Friday, May 2 through 6 a.m. Saturday, May 3.

“Everyone has been touched by cancer and it’s time to find a cure for this terrible disease. We are participating in memory of our grandmother,” co-captain Jessica Maksimik said.

The team members have raised funds through family and friends, and the group raised more than $250 in a bake sale in the Falls of Autry Mill subdivision.

They are well on their way to meeting their fundraising goal of $1,000.
