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.
This weekend we celebrated my nephew’s 10th birthday. I think my husband had more fun with the new toys than my nephew did – he spent quite a bit of time building a huge marble track, eventually using every piece in the Marble Run set and the extender set. Don’t you love his concentration level?
Tonight is Relay For Life. Tonight, I will celebrate all the progress we’ve made in the fight against cancer. Tonight, I will remember loved ones lost. Tonight, I will fight back against the disease – by raising money & raising awareness. Twenty of my closest friends and family and I will gather together, along with about 400 other participates, to walk the track all night. To do what we can to help create a world with less cancer. And one day in my lifetime, a world with no cancer. Please do what you can, too. Support Relay For Life by purchasing a print of one of my photos. This is your last chance for 2013.
