Canteys to Chair Relay

By  | 

Work continues for the organizers of this year's Lauderdale County Relay for Life.

The honorary chairmen for the event were announced Wednesday, cancer survivors Jim and Jo Ellen Cantey.

"It's great to know that you have done something that people recognize, and that is survive, and we are elated to be the people who represent those people who have survived and continue to survive," said the Canteys.

Ninety-six teams have already signed up for this year's Relay for Life. That's just two teams shy of last year.

Organizers say they hope to get at least 130 teams to help raise the goal of $400,000.
