Relay for Life

Well I just signed up to walk with the UVI team for the Relay for Life American Cancer Society fund raiser.

Relay For Life is a fun-filled overnight event designed to celebrate survivorship and raise money for research and programs of your American Cancer Society. During the event, teams of people gather at schools, fairgrounds, or parks and take turns walking or running laps. Each team tries to keep at least one team member on the track at all times.

Your gift will make a difference in the fight against cancer. Every dollar you provide to the American Cancer Society goes towards eliminating cancer as a major health concern. The money raised is central to supporting our mission, which aims to fight cancer through research, education, advocacy, and service. Together, we share a hope for a tomorrow free of cancer.

I'm hoping the event will be set up on line soon so that I can start taking donations (hint, hint). In the meantime, if you would like to make a donation, let me know and I will give you a mailing address. This is a great cause and your donations will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the updates if you want to post the address I'll donate or if it is easier to wait till the web site is up that will work too. This is my biggest chairity since my wife passed away for it.

Wow, thank you. Cancer has also touched our family, as I'm sure is the case with most families. Let's give ACS until next week to see if they can get the event listed on the website so that online donations can be made. If they can't get it together, then I'll post my mailing address.
