Relay for Life

I was excited to raise $1000 this year to help find a cure for cancer. Thank you to everyone who made this possible. Amy and Mary both got Pa-Pa a luminaria.
This is our team picture, everyone attended some time during the evening.

Paige, Tracy, Donna, and myself stayed all night! We walked 15 miles. It's been a long time since I've stayed up all night, and I wasn't sure I could do it. We kept each other going and even decided to start jogging at about 5am! (what were we thinking?!)
This luminaria was purchased by 3 teachers in memory of Ashley, a 3rd grade teacher on our campus that lost her battle with cancer in November. She left behind a 1st and 5th grader at our school.
I am looking forward to another successful fundraiser next year!
