Tallahassee, Florida --

One Leon County principal is proving he's pretty in pink and shows off his ballerina moves; all for a good cause!

Leon High Principal Rocky Hanna, Athletic Director Mark Feely and Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare CEO Mark O'Bryant had a date on the billboard on Tennessee Street and Franklin Blvd. in their tu-tu's and tiara's.

Hanna told the students he would wear the pink tutu if they raised enough money.

Stories of cancer live in almost every family, even the Leon High family.

"I was diagnosed last year. I'm in remission now, so that's good news. I guess that you can say that that's a good things and that some of the research and money that does go for cancer does work and I'm loving proof for that right now," said Leon's Athletic Director Mark Feely.

The school is on a mission to raise $25,000 dollars to put towards the new Image Recovery Room in the new Cancer Center at TMH.

You can help.

Leon High will be hosting it's poker run this Saturday, October 2nd.. For more information call Leon High at (850) 488-9501.
