Introducing the Chair of the Relay Leadership Team
for the Mid-South Division
Knoxville, TN. –July 25, 2016 - The American Cancer Society’s Mid-South Division recently named MJ Plaisance as Chair of the Division Relay Leadership Team. As Chair, Plaisance will provide strategic volunteer leadership for the Relay For Life program in the six Mid-South states of Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee.
The Division Relay Leadership Team is the volunteer leadership group overseeing Relay For Life for the American Cancer Society in the Mid-South Division. Relay For Life began in 1985 and continues to provide hope and funding for the American Cancer Society’s mission to end the pain and suffering from cancer. Plaisance began his journey with the American Cancer Society when his son was diagnosed with cancer. In 2007, he joined Relay For Life of Terrebonne Parish, serving on the logistics committee and later as logistics chair. Plaisance became the event co-lead in 2013 and served as the event lead for 2015 and 2016. Plaisance is instrumental in the success of Relay For Life events in the Southeast Louisiana region, serving as a trainer for event leadership teams and helping with Team Captain University for the New Orleans region. In 2015, MJ joined the Mid-South Division Coaching and Development team and also agreed to serve as co-chair of the Mid-South Division Relay Leadership Team. This year, he steps up as chair of the team for the 2016-2017 event season.
Bernadette Mabile, Terrebonne Parish co-lead, said, “MJ said this about me and now I will say it about him as well, 'he is a Relay warrior’ and I’ve never known anyone to be as dedicated and committed to a cause as much as MJ Plaisance. It is a pleasure knowing him and I am humbled to be a part of MJ’s Relay World.” Relay For Life provides a highly visible symbol of personal victory over the disease, plus encourage support and participation in the programs of the Society. Relay For Life represents the courageous struggle of all cancer patients as they deal with the physical and emotional aspects of their experience.
