This year I will be participating in the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life. It will be held in Santa Clarita beginning the morning of May 31st for a full 24 hours. Its at Central Park on Bouquet Cyn. I am on the weSpark Cancer Support Team. All the money raised will go to the American Cancer Society, to help in their research efforts. weSpark is the cancer support center I go to each week to meet with other people who are going through the same kind of thing I am dealing with.
Each team will have a booth, offering games or food to anyone that comes by to say hi or participate. At night they have what is called the Luminaria Ceremony which is where there are hundreds of bags placed around the track, lit by candles. There is a concert in the evening too.
Our team, like all the others, is looking for donations. Anything would help so even if it’s just the dollar you have in your pocket, we would appreciate it. We are also looking for people who would be willing to walk for our team. Each team keeps at least one person on the track at all times. Usually people are scheduled to walk for an hour. From what I hear, it goes by pretty fast and you can walk with your wife, husband, girlfriend, boyfriend or kids. The only wheels allowed on the track are strollers and wheelchairs. Sorry, no rollerblades or bikes.
If you are interested in donating your time please let us know (call or email Jenna or I) - and we can get you signed up to walk. If you would like to donate money, drop us a donation in person or mail it to Jenna at our work. Please make any checks payable to the American Cancer Society. If you do mail a check, keep in mind we have to have all the money turned in by the day of the event.
