Chris McAlpine to Serve as Relay Chair
The American Cancer Society has selected Chris McAlpine, Parrish Medical
Center’s senior vice president for Professional Services-Administration,
to serve as event chair for this year’s Relay For Life of Titusville.
McAlpine holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Allegheny College in Meadville,
Penn. and a Juris Doctor from the New England School of Law in Boston,
Mass. His educational background also includes a specialty degree in risk
management from Northeastern University, Boston. He has participated in
the Relay for nine years, served on the logistics committee for eight
years and served as Relay chair for the past two years.
Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s national signature
event and is as much an awareness raiser as it is a fundraiser. This family-oriented
team event brings participants from all parts of the community together
in a “celebration of life.” Businesses, civic clubs, churches,
friends and families take turns walking in relay fashion while they also
celebrate the critical role the American Cancer Society plays in the fight
“The vital research and programs of the American Cancer Society
are leading the way to eliminating cancer as a major health problem,”
said McAlpine. “I’m proud to participate in Relay For Life.
More funds raised translate into more lives saved.”
Others serving on the Relay For Life committee include Honorary Chair
Robert Jordan, PMC board member. Dr. Lori Spinner, principal of Titusville
High School, will host this event. The Relay For Life of Titusville will
take place at Titusville High School Stadium on Saturday, April 17–Sunday,
April 18, starting at 4:00 pm. To participate, call your American Cancer
