Want to help but don’t know where to start? Believe me, I understand!
Start with something small, like a change jar. Throw all your loose change into a jar and donate it for the Relay For Life event in April. Have a business? Place a change jar on the counter and ask your customers to leave a few cents here and there.
Change adds up!
We have apparel available through Custom Ink! It’s where I purchased our shirts for the breast cancer walk back in September so I know the quality is great. All proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society through our Relay For Life team.

I apologize in advance if you follow both blogs…this will be a duplicate post.
I didn’t know much about the Relay For Life event and what it symbolizes before I joined. I just wanted to do something more because I’m sick of cancer.
When I read about it, I realized it’s actually pretty amazing and I wanted to share that here, as well as provide the link to the American Cancer Society so you can have the full story (click here).
Relays are anywhere from 6-24 hours in length. They are walked on a course or a track. At least one person from each team is always on the track, representing the ongoing fight against cancer. It starts with a survivor/fighter lap, then a caregiver lap, then the Relay begins. Teams have “campsites” around the track with activities, games, and refreshments that people can enjoy when they’re not walking. At sunset, the Luminarias are lit.
The above image is from the American Cancer Society website (link here). It’s a great, eye-opening visual of the event.
So, local peeps! I’d love it if you’d join us. So far, it’ll be me and Brad walking for 3 hours each, haha (our Relay is 6 hours). We’re going to have some fun stuff at our campsite so you’ll be entertained and well taken care of. It’ll be a great time for a great cause. Join us!!
