Relay for life

"Round and round
Around we go"
-Tupac
A few weeks ago, I told you about my very good friend Lori's efforts to raise awareness and money for the American Cancer Society through the Relay For Life event
This past weekend, we participated in the event which was amazing. Here are some photos...
Melissa, Lori, and I walking the track 
Lori raise more than $10,000!!!
I posted last week about my friend Tami and the Race for the Cure we did together.
Here's a great photo of Tami, her husband Gary, and the luminary bag they made to honor Tami's dad Sam Rosens who lost his own battle with cancer this past January.
The whole luminary thing is unbelievable. People decorate paper bags with the names of those they'd like to honor, and in support of those fighting cancer. At nightfall, candles are placed in the bags and they light up the track. We all walk around the track as the bags light the way. It's really an amazing experience.
This year I chose to honor the mothers of two of my good friends. Here are their bags.
These are a bunch of Lori's bags...
I'm so grateful to have been a part of this event again. I'll do it again next year. And probably the year after that, too.
