Relay For Life

Relay for Life was last weekend and I think I've finally recovered enough from the fun and sun to tell you all about it.

The event is kicked off with the survivor lap. This year our Relay decided to have Grand Marshalls who would lead the survivor lap. Three of our cancer fighting friends were selected to be Grand Marshalls, Kennedy, Grady and McKayla. It was such a thrill to watch these three terrific kids honored.

Thanks to all of you and your incredible generosity, Walking with Angels raised over $6000 to cure cancer.

Our team has three members (Becci, Michelle and me) that raised over $1000 each which earns us a seat in the region's Grand Club. That was the most number of Grand Club members from one team!

For all of our efforts, Walking With Angels once again earned the coveted Spirit Award! This was based on overall contributions to the event from participation in activities to donations to the silent auction to recruiting teams and so much more.

We could not have done any of this without your help. Thank you so much for your prayers, attendance at fundraising events, donations and encouragement! I also want to call out the incredible support we received from several businesses. Let's reward their generosity by supporting their businesses.

I leave you with the Relay motto - Celebrate. Remember. Fight Back.

Nice work! I was thinking about you guys all weekend and kept wondering when the update would occur :) Apparently I have nothing better to do then live in my little blog/on-line world. I am slacking from writing a report right now, so I had better get back to it. I am so glad everything went well! I can not believe how much you raised!!! If we stay here I am supposed to be the Chair for Joshua's school auction committee, but if we go back to Oregon you can count me in for assistance! Not that I don't love my son's school, but I would also love to be putting the energy towards kicking cancer's butt too!!! Well better get back to the report :(

Whoa, I agree with LCM - you are frickin' tiny! And the hair continues to look fabulous. Congrats on they money raised AND the spirit award. That's really awesome.

BTW, I heard Grandma's bday at Home Town Buffet (or whatever it's called) was 'delish' sorry I missed it :) Though, I wish I'd been there to see you all!
