Relay for Life

Our Relay for Life Walk was the past weekend. We had a great time and I am proud to say we had at least one member of our team walking the entire night beginning at 8pm Fri and ending at 8am Sat. One lady, ~ 60 yrs old and a cancer survivor, set a goal for herself to walk 50 laps...and she did it! That's over 12 miles! I only walked 4 miles :). I was in charge of making this adorable "lap" jar you see in the picture. The theme was "Going for the Gold" indicated by the gold coins and our team colors were red and white. As each team member walked a lap, they were to drop money or change into the jar to raise additional $$. Our team held 5 fundraising events over the past 6 months including our booth at the Relay Walk. I am happy to announce our team alone raised over $7,000 donated to help find a cure for cancer. It was a long night, we had a great time and met alot of new people (who we hope to see again next year). Go "Red Rovers!!"
