Relay for Life 2012

This weekend, I joined hundreds of people in our community, to raise money for cancer research. It was amazing! The annual walk is made up of local teams that all have their own fundraisers. Then all the teams get together to walk all night in to celebrate the survivors, remember loved ones, and to raise money to fight back! The walk happens across the globe.  To join in the walk in your community, or to find and join a local team, just click here: Relay for Life

From left to right, Top row:  Logan and Morgan walking with the survivors.

Middle top row: The view of the front of the Opening Ceremony while we walked.  Then throughout the day, the American Cancer Society went around taking pictures of all 31 teams in action. They put those photos together as a slide show and presented it to us at midnight.

Middle bottom: Our midnight walkers.  It was awesome to see all the families and neighbors that came and walked for our team!

Bottom row:  Families would leave the names of survivors, caregivers, etc in this growing flower garden, to represent why we are all part why we are here. After the sun went down, there was a beautiful luminary ceremony to remember and honor loved ones who have passed. The entire track was lined with them. It was beautiful!

I’m linking up again this week with Alicia, Kristi and Rebecca to celebrate summer! Anyone can join in!
