This years Relay was very difficult after the loss of our dear friend Ty on April 5th. His passing followed shortly by the event itself just validated why we Relay. We had so many wonderful people on the team this year and we raised over $57,400! My brother Rick even made the drive down from Michigan to be there for the night of. The weather was very uncooperative and it stormed for the opening ceremonies all the way through the luminary ceremony. Our team toughed it out, decided to sell coffee, tea and cocoa to keep people warm and just kept on truckin'. I was approached by the ACS to take on the role of Co-Chair for the 2008 Relay. I will be going from team captain to leader of the 5th largest relay in the world. I may be cashing in some favors from my friends this year;)...if you want more information on our team, click on the link on the right hand side of the blog.
