I write this asking for your support and donations. I will be participating in the 2011 American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Wilson County, Texas. After being on the Relay for Life of Wilson County board for the past 2 years this year I had to step down due to scheduling conflicts but this is still a cause close to my heart. Cancer is the great equalizer, everyone has been touched by this horrible disease. Please help me to raise funds for this worthy cause.
The American Cancer Society Relay for Life celebrates the lives of people who have battled cancer and won. Relay remembers and honors those lost to this disease. Relay raises funds to fight back against cancer. At the event, teams camp out and take turns walking or running around a track. Each team is to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are over night and can last up to 24 hours with most lasting 12 hours.
Celebrate-Relay starts with a Survivors lap to honor those who have battled and beat cancer, and those who are still in the fight.
Remember-After the sun goes down Relay takes time to honor the people touched by cancer, and remember loved ones lost to this disease. They do this with theLuminaria Ceremony. During the ceremony candles are lit inside sand filled bags for each person touched by cancer, and the names are read of those touched.
Fight Back- Participants are encouraged to make a commitment to fight back.
PLEASE support me in my efforts to Fight Back. Follow the link below to make a donation.
Thank-you for your support and donation. May God bless your generosity!
