Relay for Life After Party Story & Photography by Tony Centonze Montgomery County's Relay for Life is an annual event that benefits the local chapter of The American Cancer Society. The year-long campaign wrapped up in May, and to recognize the achievements of this year's participants, Melissa Hogan and her team gathered everyone for an after party at Old Glory Distilling Co. “This is our wrap-up party for Relay for Life 2019,” Hogan said. “We are still raising money until the end of August, but we have already started planning next year's event, which will once again be hosted at Governor's Square Mall.” Hogan says they will be moving next year's event from May to June.

“Maybe we can avoid the rain next year,” Hogan said laughingly. “I think we've been rained on for eight consecutive years. This campaign has already raised about $63,000., and donations are still coming in. We have some new ACS leadership in our market, so we are excited about new initiatives and ideas. It's going to be a good year.” Kristina Krawchuk is this area's new ACS Community Development Manager. “I support the committees in Montgomery, Sumner, Wilson, and Robertson Counties,” Krawchuk said.”This community is very engaged, and this is a really exciting time right now. There is so much research being done, especially here in the state of Tennessee. “That's a big reason why you're seeing so many people who've been diagnosed with cancer living longer. New treatments are being introduced, and we're just going to keep fighting the fight, so we can keep celebrating more and more birthdays.” Blake Monroe, Halee Henson & Sabrina Johnson
