WHY DO WE RELAY???

Our daughter, Mary, began this team in memory of her granddad, my father-in-law who lost his battle to lung cancer in 1986. We work year round raising money for ACS in fun, unique ways and every spring we participate in our area's annual Elizabeth River Relay For Life Event held at Portsmouth City Park. This blog is to keep our team and others updated on our team's activities and events as well as to share about the American Cancer Society and all the work they do to find a cure for cancer. We hope you will stop by often and leave us a post or two .... we're always open to suggestions and ideas.

WHAT A BLAST!!

HOW FUN IS THIS!!
SUCH A JOKESTER!!


LOVE THE SHOES!!

WHOO HOO!!

LOVE THE BEADS!!!

We attended the annual kick off for our area Thursday night ... it was a BAST!! I can't believe it's been 25 years since the start of Relay For Life. In honor of the 25th anniversary, the theme for Thursday's Kick Off was Relay like it's 1985 ... and we did!! Many of us, including my daughter end myself, dressed in our very best 80's garb ... I went as a NKOTH fan ... what a hoot!!

It's exciting to see everyone getting excited about this year's Relay For Life events ... our team is busy making plans for our upcoming Tea Party, Mary is busy planning our first (that we know of) area Mini Relay at a local Elementary School, many from our team are making plans for this year's relay as several of us are committee members in charge of lining up activities and intertainment for the entire event (I will be posting specifics about upcoming activities and events) and our Relay ... Elizabeth River/Portsmouth... is having it's Kick-Off February 10th (the same night at the Mini Relay) so Eddie (my husband) will be at the Kick-Off representing our team. We are the top fundraiser and team member sign-ups so far so we get to set up a fundraiser table at the kick-off ... we will be selling cookbooks.

Exiting things going .... more later!!!!
