Relay for Life

July 19, 2009

I participated in the American Cancer Society Relay for Life in June in Rexburg.  I was a fun experience and I had a good time with the other girls on our team from my ward.  I don’t know about the staying up all night part though… I’m not really used to that and I felt like it took me a few days to recuperate!  I didn’t really keep track of how many miles I walked or anything, but I did raise over $100 (thanks everyone!!!) and our team exceeded our goal of $1400.  It seems like they had said the total raised was around $30,000 or something for the whole event!  We had a huge thunderstorm right before everything was supposed to get started so they delayed things for awhile.  The sun finally came out, but it was wet and humid all night long and so colder than I thought it would be.  At one point during the wee hours of the morning I kept walking because it was keeping me warm!
