Relay For Life

It's almost that time again! You might remember from last year, but I'm very invested in my school's Relay For Life. For me, Relay has always been a binding experience. It's one of those things that brings you closer to people and solidifies the shared human experience of cancer. I Relay because I want to see fewer friends and families affected by this debilitating disease. Every day I thank whatever fortune I had to not have any direct family affected by cancer.


A friend introduced me to Relay For Life. Relay is an all-night walk-a-thon based on the idea that "Cancer never sleeps." Before the event, teams raise money for cancer research and support, and during the event they participate in all sorts of fun events, walking around the track, and in the luminaria ceremony, which honors and remembers those fighting and lost. Please consider joining your local event or donating even the smallest amount, as it would really mean a lot to me and to your communities.

Also, for more on why I relay {or to donate (which would rock my socks!)} visit, MY RELAY PAGE
