Last night 35 registered teams 638 pre-registered participants (along with other friends, families and supporters) gathered together at Tate High School to Celebrate, Remember and Fight Back. The event ended very early due to bad weather but, we Celebrated our Survivors with a Survivor lap. Cheering on the Survivors as they take the first lap around the track is an awesome experience. It’s a little bittersweet as you think of all they have endured and those you wish could be walking that lap too come to mind, but seeing the victory is truly sweet. We did have time to Remember the luminaria may have not been lit but we saw the names of those being Remembered, we shared the stories of those dear people we had lost. And boy oh boy did we fight back. Funds were raised. We fought the elements. Our clothes and stuff may have been dampened but our spirit and determination were not. We will continue to raise funds and look forward to Relaying next year. Relay for Life is an overnight event because Cancer never sleeps. Cancer also doesn’t stop for rain and neither will our efforts. We already have a plan to begin fundraising for Relay 2011 using the leftover food and goodies from last night. To all my St. Luke Relay Family, I love you all, God has blessed us more than I can tell you and each of you is very special to me and Wesley.
