Camp Run A Muck
Remember summer camp of years ago when your biggest worry was which tree you were going to climb, who was going to catch the biggest pollywog, playing fun games and nothing more than running a muck. For this event, we want to create a day of escape, a day where we can put aside having to grow up, a day to acknowledge that the real world is not so bad and that life's challenges can be overcome by extending a smile and helping hand to those around you. This is a day dedicated to memories of those we have lost to cancer and to those who continue to struggle in its grip. We'll be there to smile, laugh and escape with you all the while reminding ourselves we're here raising awareness and support against this nemesis that knows no gender, race, orientation, age or class. We ALL have a stake in this game - that is reality!

Our Team's Fundraiser at Relay
If anyone has an idea for a fundraiser at Relay, please let me know. In previous years the raffle tickets sales for the baskets never exceeded the cost of the baskets, so if you have any ideas please let me know! Also, any other ideas or help with fundraisers prior to Relay would be appreciated.
Luminaries can be purchased from me for $5 until May 31st. After May 31st and at Relay they will be $10. As in previous years, during the luminaria ceremony there will be a slide show to memorialize our friends and family. Photos to be included in the slide show must be sent to the organizer by June 19th. Send them to me and I will forward them on.
