The American Cancer Society has selected Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee to serve as honorary chair for this year's Relay For Life of Town N Country.
Relay For Life, the American Cancer Society's national signature event, celebrates the lives of those who have battled cancer, remembers those lost and empowers individuals to fight back against the disease.
This family-oriented team event brings participants from all parts of the community together in a "celebration of life." Businesses, civic clubs, churches, friends, and families take turns walking in relay fashion while they also celebrate the critical role the American Cancer Society plays in the fight against cancer.
"The vital research and programs of the American Cancer Society are leading the way to eliminating cancer as a major health problem," said Sheriff Gee. "I'm proud to participate in Relay for Life. More funds raised translate into more lives saved."
This year, Sheriff Gee is the Honorary Chairman and Major Ray Lawton will be representing the Sheriff on the evening of the event. Major Lawton will introduce the Survivors on the opening lap.
The Sheriff's Office Honor Guard will be conducting the Presentation of the Colors and leading the survivors around the track on the opening lap.
