Relay Spirit

Relay is over and lemme tell ya, it was awesome. In the true sense of the word, not the 80's watered-down version. We walked and sweated and raised money and sweated and danced and sweated and sang and get the picture. Team Walking with Angels made the most of the event and it showed because we won the SPIRIT AWARD! (C'mon, be impressed, it's the only award given at Relay.) I'll give a link to all the pics soon but in the meanwhile, check these out:

Team Pic - aren't we stylin' in our team t-shirts?
Next year, team tank tops.

Spirit Award Winners! Go Angels.

One of my baby's luminarias.
The event raised over $51,000 for the American Cancer Society. Our team raised over $4000, not bad for our first year!
Closing credits:
  • Co-captain - Becci (the best co-captain a girl could ask for)
  • Team members - Jeff, Skip, Linda, Michelle, Becca, Cody, Amy, Wendy, Elyse, Jenna, Liz, Jennifer (an amazing team - full of energy and passion)
  • Visiting walkers - Grady and his family, Lexie's parents, McKayla's mom, Becca's mom, Lisa and her kiddos, Jennifer's husband and kiddos, Jason and Matthew (thanks for coming out and supporting us)
  • Volunteers - Massage therapists Dana Davis & Nick d'Alonzo (thanks for donating your time and talents), Heresy Wears (thanks for the cool tees, we definitely stood out in the crowd!)
  • Corporate donors - Al's Garden Center, Blooming Nursery, Gymboree, Patti Stanley, Landmark Ford, Nike, Rain Salon (thanks for your financial support/item donation)
  • Donors - Thank you all for your prayers and financial support!

I'm sure I missed folks so thank you everyone. This was a total team effort and I am proud that we were all a part of CURING CANCER!
