Relay for Life

From my sister-in-law:
Hello friends,

This weekend Joe and I are participating in our third Relay for Life, a fundraising event for the American Cancer Society. The Relay for Life brings together survivors and caregivers in the community to celebrate life and the progress that is being made in the fight against cancer. Our whole team will certainly be celebrating as Joe finishes his final round of chemo this week!! (Whoop! Whoop!)

I'm writing to ask that you consider a donation to the ACS, that will go directly to research.

If you know anyone who has fought cancer, you can donate a "luminary" in their honor or memory. These are $10 a piece and will have their name on the front (I'll even take a picture of it and send it to you!) The luminaries line the track, inside and out, and stay lit all night long. It's quite a touching experience to see the survivors take the first lap, thier steps lit by the legacies of those who valiantly fought, and those who continue to fight.

As a special incentive, two members of our team are offering a raffle for a week (your choice) at their home on Cape Cod for those who donate at least $100. (Let me know if you'd like more details on this.)

Thank you very much for considering a donation to the American Cancer Society through the Relay for Life.
