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.

Our area's Relay For Life Marched in Memorial Day Parade!!

We had so much fun ... it gave us goosebumps everytime the crowd cheered and clapped and yaa hoo'd us when we walked by. My 7 year old grandson rode in the convertible wearing a Kids Care Program human sign and my daughter and her two boys walked/rode along. The event is just 1 1/2 weeks away ... we are gearing up now, getting things ready, but mostly we are very excited about this year's Relay For Life!!!

Our team rocks ... we are in first place in money raised fundraisers so far! We are planning so many fun things for the kids and adults at the event and our team has several fundraisers planned again this year including a couple of new ones!

The dates/times for Relay are Friday, June 5, 2009 beginning at 4:30PM through Saturday morning at 7AM .... at Portsmouth City Park ... come out, join the fun!!!!
