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!



Just letting everyone know I am doing the Relay for Life in Rexburg on June 26th. I have a personal goal to raise $200 at least for my team. A group of us in the ward “the Pink Ladies” are all doing this together. I am doing mine in memory of mom-in-law, Lana, and my Grandma Kirkham. If you would like to donate please go to my Relay page and you can donate online. You can also print out a donation for or get the money to me and I will turn it in.

I also have luminary bags that you can purchase ($10.00) and decorate in memory of someone specific. They will be lit and displayed sometime during the Relay.

I appreciate any efforts you make to support this cause! Thanks!
