Dearborn police to enter Relay for Life team

DEARBORN — The Police Department announced it will enter a team for this year’s Relay for Life.

As a fundraising effort for the American Cancer Society, Relay for Life is an event in which teams from the community walk 24 straight hours to support cancer research. This year the Relay for Life will be held at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center from May 12 to 13.

“Our objective is to have as many police officers participating in the 24 hour event as possible,” Police Chief Ronald Haddad said, “with the goal of raising at least $2,000 toward cancer research.”

The department is seeking support from residents in the form of monetary sponsorships and donations to the team. The department asks a minimum $10 donations to support the cause.

Donors may make their donation by calling 313-943-3092 or completing a form (see advertisement on Page X-X) and returning it to the Dearborn Police Department, 16099 Michigan Ave., Dearborn, MI, 48126.

“Cancer has impacted the life of families and individuals in so many ways,” Haddad said. “By participating in the Relay for Life event the Dearborn police feel this is a way to give back to the community.”
