Relay for Life
The Relay for life was this past weekend, and I want to give a big thank you to all the volunteers who give up part or all of their Saturday in support of Relay for Life and its goal of ending Cancer.
This was my first Relay for Life, and I jumped right in as a team captain. I gathered a team of 3 and we set to work, generating ideas, attending a few very helpful meetings, and talking to friends and family about cancer and how it has affected our lives.
In the end we decided to sell cookies at the Relay and not do a fundraising event ahead of time. The Relay committee was incredibly friendly and helpful. We stayed late into the night, but sadly we didn't meet our sales goal. While ever dollar counts I am sad we couldn't do more for such a great cause. We are already making plans for next year. We are excited.
