Relay for Life
Hey all. I have finally had a chance to settle from my busy week last week. It was a melting pot of activities every night apart from working 8 hours each day. Friday night was our local Relay for Life and I just have to say that this little town never ceases to amaze me. It's been about 7 or 8 months of coordinating teams, making sure they have everything they need, recruiting more teams and pretty much realizing they are all very self sufficient. I am so proud of the teams, sponsors, donors, volunteers and others that helped raise over $90,000 to help benefit the American Cancer Society. Money is still coming in and will be until August 30th. Our goal was $100,000 and I can't imagine why we won't hit it. Amazing. Amazing that during the economic times over 30 teams and hundreds of local volunteers raised such a large amount of money in about 5 or 6 months. I still can't get my head around it. It leaves me speechless and that is something that rarely happens.
