Relay for Life

Tonight is our Relay for Life walk for the Canadian Cancer Society. As per usual this spring /early summer the weather here is abysmal . Rain , rain and more rain . Of course tomorrows forecast is sunny and warm . The weather won't dampen my spirits though . After it's all said and done I was able to achieve and today surpass my fundraising goal of $500 . As of today my personal total stands at $575 , this includes online and real life donations . The team total is nearing $ 3600 . A great big thank you to all the wonderful people who donated to this event in memory of and and in honour of those who are battling this terrible disease in their lives today. I'll certainly be thinking of all of you as we walk tonight in the hope for a cure someday soon . Thank you again from the bottom of my heart .

BTW , you can still donate , by clicking on the Cancer Society logo at the top right hand side of this page . My personal page is still up . The prizes mentioned in a previous post (here and here ) are still up for grabs . I'll have the draw this week-end after I've recovered from the walk . Have a good week-end !

I just learned today, that Alex, my daughters friend past away last night. She was so young, and left 5 boys behind. She knew that she had cancer in January. So sad.

I hope you don't get thunderstorms during your walk.
