Relay for Life

On Saturday, Will and I joined some of my friends from work and participated in the Relay for Life. This is a overnight event (we didn’t stay overnight though) that benefits the American Cancer Society. My aunt Sherri took part in this event in California every year and now my cousin Nicole has taken over Sherri’s team.

This past year two of the people I work very closely with (one of the principals and one of our technology people were both diagnosed with Cancer). Along with the diagnosis of my cousin Stan and of course my Aunt Sherri and Uncle Dan who are no longer with us, cancer seems to be a big part of my life, so when it was brought up to do something like a walk this year, we decided on the Relay for Life.

I was the biggest fundraiser in our groups and surpassed my goal twice thanks to my incredibly generous family and friends.

Will and I brought my cousin Jenny along who is staying with us for the summer to intern on Capitol Hill and set up the campsite around 2pm and wound up staying until 10pm. I didn’t walk as much as the rest of the group but I managed to get in about 3 miles over the course of the 8 hours, which I was proud of myself for.

Anyway, overall it was a great experience and I hope to do it again next year, of course Ainsleigh will be a mini-team mate too!

Our not so ornate set up-next year we’ll do better.

    This is cool Christine, do they do this everywhere? I don’t think I have heard of it before. Good job on the walking, trust me-the more walking you do at this point the better you will feel. Hang in there, this month will seem like a long month, but once she’s here everything will be different forever-in a good way!

    Yeah, they do it all around the country. I donated to my fraternity home chapter at UNR (University of Nevada, Reno) before Christine decided she was doing it. I think you can find out more about it at A HREF=”” REL=”nofollow”
