Relay for Life 2014

I’ve decided to walk in as many Relay For Life events as I can.  There are several counties that I’m interested in joining.  My husband and my family will be supporting me in this attempt.  I’ve decided on a team name of:     The “A” Team     < smiling >

I’ve come up with a design, bought and dyed T-shirts, & ironed the design on (transfer paper). In two weeks the walks begin …. Looking forward!

I have decided that I will not walk as an official team for RFL.   I will do it on my own because I just didn’t have the energy to fundraise.     I’ll be posting photos of the events.

 

The WV counties that I’m participating in are:

      • Marion
      • Harrison
      • Preston
      • Randolph
      • Tucker   (now canceled because of low participation)

 

C’mon out … walk with me.     🙂

The emcee asked each of the survivors to take the mike and state their name & how many years surviving we are.   My husband is 15+ years (prostate cancer) and I was proud to say 11 months!
