A good friend of mine is participating in the American Cancer Society’s “Relay for Life” race to benefit cancer research, so I thought I would post this to help spread the word. Cancer is a bad thing, so the sooner a cure is found, the sooner this world will be a better place.

redfhrdtI stole this from their website.

“At Relay For Life events, communities across the globe come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much. The funds you raise truly make a difference in the fight against cancer – just ask one of the nearly 14 million cancer survivors who will celebrate another birthday this year!

Relay teams camp out overnight and take turns walking or running around a track or path at a local high school, park, or fairground. Relay events are up to 24 hours in length and, because cancer never sleeps, each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times.”
