Relay for Life

Relay for Life
Originally uploaded by fireater.
Since Abby has been doing so good lately, we decided to brave the crowds and participate in the Fort Collins Relay for Life. This event is set up by the American Cancer Society and they have local events set up all over.

Abby has been invited walk the "survivor lap", basically anyone who has had or is currently being treated for cancer. After the opening ceremonies they have kids skits and other activities while the teams walk on the track, they walk till 12pm the next day in relay style! Yikes! At 9pm they light the Luminaries, each candle bag has a name of a person that fought cancer, in memory or honor of them. I think it will be a powerful experience to say the least.

If anyone wants to come and cheer Abby on in the opening lap or stay for the candle lightings we'll be there from 6pm-9pm on Friday night, June 10th.

When I originally commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I recieve 4 emails with the exact same comment. Perhaps there is a way you are able to remove me from that service? Appreciate it! aol email login
