I am writing this blog with my eyes half open from my work desk. Why? Because Relay for Life was AMAZING and I was enjoying it so much I decided to stay for 24 hours of walking!! (Not to mention we got to debut our new jeep!!!)
I and everyone else helping out at the event couldn’t thank this community and the ones who travelled to be here for this event enough! What an unreal 24 hours I think I cried at least 3 times because it was emotional, beautiful, and touching. The whole thing was so well put together from start to finish other than some rain here and there it went so smoothly.
For me what stood out most throughout all the hours were the ones to donated and cut off their hair, all the live music, the stories I heard, the luminary ceremony and of course the 24-hour relayers!!
I wasn’t planning on walking all through the night but I am so glad I did. Thank you to everyone who took part this weekend big or small it all made a difference and I can not WAIT for next year!!
Now if you excuse me I am going to go sleep for 24 hours, see you all next weekend!
