TAPS Public Transit exceeded its fundraising goal, raising over $3,000, as just one of the many local organizations taking part in the annual Grayson County Relay for Life campaign.
Despite a rain out at Denison’s Scott Middle School on May 8, the team-driven Relay for Life Walk was quickly moved to Loy Park Arena. Organizers said the arena was near capacity.
Cathy Teague-Perkins, TAPS manager, human resources, said the level of participation has been gratifying. “All of our activities so far have been a success, and we are looking forward to presenting a large check to the American Cancer Society.”
“The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is the world’s largest fundraising event to end cancer.”

Today, with the support of thousands of volunteers, the American Cancer Society is helping save more than 400 lives a day.
VIDEO: One of the most anticipated fundraising activities during the TAPS campaign, was the opportunity to have some fun with members of upper management. Employees bought chances to deliver a pie to the face of managers. But the grand finale was when Regional General Manager, Matt Hunt, agreed to kiss a pig for the good cause.
