Relay for Life

Relay for Life is still 4 months away but we are already knee deep in the planning. Walking with Angels is defending our title as Spirit Award winners so we have to be on top of our game. Plus I have a lot of internal pressure to maximize this event. I feel like Relay for Life is my way of finding some purpose in Lillian's illness. I want to raise as much money as I can in memory of my little girl. Maybe curing cancer is to be her legacy in some round about way. Mayber her story will inspire people to dig a little deeper. And one of those extra dollars could be the one that funds the research that ultimately cures cancer! I may not be able to find the cure but I can sure help fund the cure.

There are so many ways that you can help Lillian's legacy. Here are just a few:

  • Donate money: You can donate online at my website. Every dollar helps!

  • Donate stuff: Donate any item or service to our silent auction. Contact me at with the details on your donation.

  • Donate time: Join our team! The event is 7/12-13 in Lake Oswego. You can be as involved as you want to be; from just walking a few laps to hard core fundraising and anywhere in between.

  • Donate ideas: Do you have a brilliant fundraising idea? Or do you know someone that we should contact for donations? We'd love to hear about it. Leave a comment with the details or e-mail us.

Oh, and there is one more thing that I've mentioned before but it's worth saying again. If you are shopping online without registering on, you are throwing away money! Seriously. Just register with and selecting Walking With Angels - Relay for Life as your cause. Then shop online as usual. When you buy from one of their 690 stores, that retailer will donate a portion of your purchase price to Relay for Life. It is completely free to you. And the stores range from Ann Taylor to Zappos and everything in between. The more you shop, the more you give.

As we get closer to Relay, I'll keep you posted on all the details about our efforts to cure cancer. Thanks for your support!

I will also be supporting the best I can from DC. I was hoping to fly back for it, but my parents are in DC that weekend. So, maybe next year!! We should chat about fundraising. I did pretty good at fundraising for Joshua's school through the internet :) We ended up with a total of $30,000 of donations with about 1/2 coming from the internet and 1/2 local. Beth

Hi Lori-

I am a home interiors consultant and we have fundraising. Basically you could get as many people as you want to help you. We have the fundraisng brochures and you can sell candles and home fragrances to people. Your organizatuion gets 50% of what you sell. If you sell $1500 you get $750. (plus no shipping to get the stuff here) It is a super easy thing to sell and all items are $7-10. I would also donate an extra 25% for you as my donation. Contact me if you are interested. Jenn Y has all my contact info. Thanks, Dorothy Garcia
