cancercuffMADISONVILLE, KY (3/2/12) – For years, the annual Relay for Live event has gained the attention of many groups and organizations looking to support those harshly affected by cancer.  This year, the Madisonville Police Department is throwing their hat into the ring.

According to Police Department officials, several PD family members have been affected by cancer in the past. This has led the Department to step up and do their part in the war against cancer.

Currently the Police are selling t-shirts with the tag-line “Putting the Cuffs on Cancer” to the public. The shirts are available at the department in downtown Madisonville. The shirts are $12.00 for extra-large and below. Double X and above are $15.00. Both cash and checks are taken, and any checks should be made out to “Cops Who Care”. It should be noted that if you know someone who wants a 3X Large to a 6X Large, the police will place an order for those sizes.

If someone wishes to enter the Relay for Life Race, another aspect supported by the Madisonville Police Department, there will be a fee of $15.00 if you register before the race and a $20.00 fee if you register on the day of the race.

During the race there will be water stations, an ambulance furnished by Medical Center Ambulance Service, and a walking event for those who do not wish to run. If you want to register with the police team, go to the Madisonville Police Station and pick up a registration form in the lobby room.

The police team will be led by Detective Leighann Leavell on May the 18th. There will be awards given out to participants. A short sleeve shirt will also be given to keep, and refreshments will be provided.  If more information is required, contact Lt. Mark Phaup or Det. Leighann Leavell at 270-821-1720.

A special thanks to the Madisonville Police Department for their hard work and dedication, always going the extra mile for this community.
