Today I registered as a Team Leader for the Canadian Cancer Society's 2008 Relay for Life. It's an event I was proud to take part in with my family last June in honour of my Mother's ongoing battle with this horrible disease at the time and everyone else we knew that had been affected by it! This year it will take place on June 6th in the city next to where I live... it's an over night event of walking and other entertainment... the slogan is "Because Cancer Never Sleeps", and it truly is a beautiful, touching and of course fun event that brings so many people together!
Last year at the event I attended they were 1700 people on teams... so that count didn't include people who had shown up to support others! Teams consist of ten people and prizes are given for best flag and best campsite... it's really hard to explain if you haven't experienced it!! This year my goal is to raise $2000!! Wish me luck in my endeavour!! If you are interested in reading more about this wonderful event you can find the page here
and if you are interested in helping me reach my goal, you can find my online pledge page here
I do this because I believe in giving back! My Mom is my hero and has faced more than I think most people could handle!! I've seen her battle many things head on, and I couldn't be more proud to be a part of her!!....
