May 8: An Opportunity to Help

The American Cancer Society “Relay for Life.”

On June 9-10, at the Lincoln-Sudbury High School track, I will be joining hundreds of other people in the American Cancer Society Relay for Life. We enter the event as a team, and each team commits to having at least one person on the track at all times… all night.

Now, when I heard about this, I couldn’t figure it out. All night? Round and round a track all night? For why? Well, here’s the best explanation I could find:

“Relay For Life was originally conceived as a 24-hour event because cancer patients battle the disease around the clock. When we relay, we go on whether it is day or night, rain or shine… cancer never sleeps, so neither do we. There is no finish line until we find a cure!”

So, as far as I can tell, it’s another opportunity to do nutsy things for cash. (I, myself, have absolutely no problem with this; in the next few days, you will see some other nutsy things I’m willing to do for a donation to cancer research.) There is only one catch: I must raise at least $100.00 to be able to participate. If you would like to sponsor my Relay for Life, please follow this link to my Relay page and pledge your support. And thank you!
