Relay for Life

July 30th, 2011
With so many people effected by cancer every year, I thought this would be a great event to support.  At Relay for Life, teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path.  The Parker Relay for Life began Saturday at 3pm with each team setting up their spaces around the track at Salsbury Park in Parker.  Teams decorate their booths and set up their tents for the long night to come.  The race ended the next morning at 7am with a huge pancake breakfast.  To kick off the event they have all cancer survivors walk the track to celebrate their fight.  During the race there were events scheduled every hour all evening long and into the morning for both racers and team members, everything from Bunco Games, Movies on Blow up screens, kid relay races, and ZUMBA!!  It was a touching night with so many incredible displays of strength and hope.  I can't wait to be part of this event again next year.
