The City of Sevierville Police Department is participating in national “No-Shave November.” And this year, the program will be extended to include October as well. This marks the third year that the SPD has participated in the national program.
The goal of No-Shave November is to grow cancer awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow. Employees who choose to participate will pay $25.00 per month and the money raised will be donated to a cancer program selected by the department. This year we will be donating all the money collected by the department in Kelly DeBord’ s honor. For those who did not know Kelly, she was the Sevierville Marketing Director who recently passed away after a long battle with cancer. Kelly was a huge fan of the police department and worked closely with SPD Lt. Cowan and others on Relay for Life.
“Our hope is that we will help raise cancer awareness, save lives and aid those who are fighting this terrible disease,” said SPD Chief Joseph Manning.
