Friday night was my team’s fifth annual American Cancer Society Relay For Life event. I walk the track and fundraise in memory of my aunt Jill and in honor of many other friends and family. This year was a bit different – juggling team captain responsibilities and taking care of a four-month old was a challenge at times. And I didn’t get to take nearly as many pictures as I would have liked. This year we packed up around midnight rather than walking until 6 a.m. But our strong and mighty team has still raised over $3,000, and we aren’t finished yet! There’s still time to donate to the cause.
What is it with ice hockey and fights? Sometimes I wonder if they’re really that much more angry than other athletes. Either way, it makes for an entertaining sport. We had a great time watching the Missouri Mavericks smear the Arizona Sundogs Saturday night. Best of all – the proceeds from our tickets went to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network – a cause dear to my heart.
