We took part in the relay for life last weekend. It was amazing. Out of 71 teams our team raised the 2nd highest amount. We raised almost $8000.00 for cancer research. It was great to see all the survivors out there making laps.

That is most excellent, my friend, and a huge amount of money raised. I participated in two of those many years back with my previous cancer bouts, they can be a humbling experience.

It was a very tear filled 24 hours to say the least. From the survivors lap to the luminaria it was all incredible.During the luminaria the word in the stadium that was lit with luminaria bags changed from hope to cure. I have great pics. Will post on face book. Todd
