I had a great time at this past weekend’s Relay for Life event at O’Brien Park in Parker, CO.
A fundraising event, “Relay For Life is the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Relay is staffed and coordinated by volunteers in more than 5,200 communities and 27 countries. Volunteers give of their time and effort because they believe it’s time to take action against cancer.” Couldn’t have said it better myself, so why try??
This was my first Relay, and I participated because a dear friend and client of mine, Nancy Y., is a 3-year breast cancer survivor. She has participated in the Relay before, but this year she decided to create a team in honor of her daughter-in-law Becky, who was recently diagnosed at age 38 with breast cancer. Nancy’s team grew to 24 members and we raised over $2000! Final numbers aren’t in, but the Parker Relay held on 9/30/2017 raised approximately $65,000+ ! It’s amazing what we can do when we pull together.
