Busy Fighting Cancer!

Lance Armstrong once said, “If children have the ability to ignore all odds and percentages, then maybe we can all learn from them. When you think about it, what other choice is there but to hope? We have two options, medically and emotionally: give up or fight like hell.” Lance Armstrong obviously didn’t give up. He fought with vigor and unstoppable belief in his recovery. Thank you to all who came to the Peters Relay for Life 2010 and showed your HOPE! Whatever part you played, if you were there or made a donation to the event you made a difference and should be proud of yourself!
I know that I haven’t posted in a bit.  If you are a Moo…..  It’s Monday Fan, you may think I gave up on diet and exercise.  I didn’t!  After only four hours of sleep Saturday night, I still got up for Katie Page Boot Camp at Relay.  It was awesome and those inch worm abs & the millions of squats Katie had us do have me hurting today!  I should be back with Moo….  It’s Monday regular posts next week.  I have just been busy being the Committee Online/Technology Chair for the Peters Township Relay for Life that finally happened this weekend.  We start planing this in December of 2009 and have meetings all through 2010 until the day of the event in May.  It’s time consuming all year; but, in May especially… but worth it when your event goes off without a glitch!  So far our community has raised over $77,000+ total.  I also was a team member of an AWESOME team that raised about $3,000 so far.  Online we have raised about $13,000 which I am extremely happy with and beats out any other online years for any Peters Township Relay for Life.   Whhhhhhhhhhooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooopppppppppp!!!!!!!!
The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for this event.  You can see in the first picture above (taken by my friend Kristi), the weather was AWESOME.  God definitely shined his light down on our fight!  If you haven’t been to a Relay to just walk the track, you NEED to find one in your area and go out with the family. 
 “The American Cancer Society Relay For Life represents the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day cancer will be eliminated.” 
Teams walk or run the track for 24 hours.  The goal of each team is to have at least one team member on the track for a 24 hour period.  This signifies that those with cancer fight it 24 hours a day!  However, you do not need to have a team to come to a Relay event.  It’s a family fun day filled with games, food, prizes, and entertainment all to support the American Cancer Society.  Bring your family out to check one out!  You can learn more about Relay here!
