Relay for Life

Mother and Daughter

My reason to Relay

Relay for Life has come and gone once again in TinyTown.

Every June (usually on the hottest.day.ever), most of TinyTown turns out at one point or another to walk the track, eat some good grub from booths trying to raise funds for cancer research, bid on baskets, and buy a luminaria or two in memory or support of loved ones.

The high school track turns into a town of its own - tents everywhere, lots of waves and greetings, and purple as far as the eye can see.

It's really something else.

We stuck it out most of the day, and I walked many miles (in the heat!) without much of a sunburn to show, and raffled off my quilt to the tune of over $120 dollars.

Thanks to my friends and family, I personally raised over $1300 for cancer research.

I watched Cowboy Bob circle the track, my dad take a lengthy nap, Greg dress the former fire chief in freezing cold (and wet!) clothes, two storms blow through, and ate a lot of tasty food.

Good times.

Good times made better that my parents was there with me for every minute of the day.

Thanks to all of you for your support, your dollars, and your thoughts! Go Relay!

Family, Relay-Style

Of course, I also took many, many pictures. Wanna see?
