My team is called the Plum Crazy Cruizers. Most of us are members of the same Red Hat Chapter, some are friends and family who join us in our fight to find a cure. Together we are awesome. We are fun-loving. We are committed.
What is Relay For Life Anyway?
We each have our own reasons for Relaying. Our own history with cancer. Some of us are cancer Survivors. (Yahoo!) Some of us are battling cancer now. (BooHoo!) Some of us have lost loved ones to cancer. (Sadness!) We Relay for a Mother, a Father, a Sister, a Brother, a Daughter or Son, and so on. You know. Nearly everyone knows someone who has been touched by this monster, cancer.
So we walk around a track lit by candles in luminaria bags. Each bag has the name of someone who knows cancer by its first name - Trouble! The luminarias are In Memory of, In Support of, In Honor of a loved one. Thousands of tiny candles to light up the night while we walk, and walk, and walk some more.
Why do I Relay? I Relay for myself, my HB (HoneyBunny), my Mom, my Dad, my Sister, my Sister-in-Law, my friends, and for YOU.
Do you Relay? You can find an event near you at Relay For Life.org.
