Relay for Life



Dave and I have decided to do something completely different (for us!) We are going to participate in this year's Relay for Life to benefit the American Cancer Society.  As survivors, we only need to walk one lap around Ashley Pond-- I think even I can do that, and it will be Dave's easiest race ever!  If you would like to join in this good cause with us, you can donate to my efforts here, and to Dave's here. It will be fun to see how this works out, and I'll update you all here when the event is over on June 16th. I don't want anyone to feel obligated to give to this, but if you feel so led, Gentle reader, please do so.

You may be wondering why I want to do this.  And I am not sure I know, except that I feel the urge to be in a crowd of other warriors who understand, and I want to give something back, however little, to folks who have given for my benefit. So we are giving it a try.  Come on along if you feel so inclined!
