Relay for Life Kick Off

You are all invited to the 2008 Relay for Life of Lake Oswego Kick Off Party. Phew, that's a mouth full! Here are the details:

When: Monday, February 4th (that's tomorrow) from 7-8pm
Where: Lake Oswego High School cafeteria 2501 Country Club Road
Bring your family & friends
Enjoy snacks & prizes
Listen to an inspirational speaker
Find out more about this year's Relay theme
Learn more about Relay for Life

This is a great opportunity to learn more about Relay for Life and have a little fun at the same time. And fun is a big part of what Relay is all about. Curin' cancer and havin' fun. Now that's what I'm talkin about. Actually, that really is what I'm talkin about... The Relay committee asked me to share our story at the kick off tomorrow. It JUST occured to me that I may be the "inspirational speaker" they are listing in the publicity info. Maybe there is another inspirational speaker. Maybe I'm just one of many people giving their story. Sure, I bet that's it. Because being inspirational is a lot of pressure. Does that mean you're supposed to make them laugh...or cry...or dance? Who knows? My goal is simple. I am going to tell the story of my brave little girl's battle and all the people we've met along the way. And hope that our story inspires them to raise a little more money to cure cancer.

I hope you can make it! But if you can't and would like more info on Relay or our team, Walking with Angels, let me know. We'd love to have you join our team. Or even start a new team! You can also get more info on the website: http://events.cancer.org/rfllakeoswegoor

Are you going to post your speech for those of us that can't be there in person? I'd sure like to hear it, but reading it would be next best. --Mom

I would love to be there tonight, but hopping on a plane this late would be a little hard ;) Not to mention I have been really sick since last night! So, I am there in thought. I would love to know when the event is and maybe I can plan a trip around it :) Always looking for excuses to fly out and I couldn't think of a better excuse! Beth

Woohoo! I wonder if they realize how we will so dominate again this year?!

We can't wait to be there...and you don't need to give a speech to inspire most of us, Miss Lori.

See you tonight!

I wish we would have been there. I'm sure your speech was amazing and touched many lives. I just picture all of the luminaries from last years event and imagine all the ones to come this year. We have so many more kids to add to the group. I wish there was an end to all the new diagnosis' but they keep on coming. I can't wait for the day when they can decare a cure for ALL cancer!
