It was HOT!! It was HUMID!! It rained while we set up! We tied dyed our shirts to stand out from the crowd! Sweat dripped off of us as we were walking and taking our laps! But, we kept hydrated, and pushed through! We walked all day, we sold our baked goods and ice cold water, soda, and juice!
Our team, STORM SPIRITS, raised $1400! Which goes to cancer research, transportation for patients to and from treatments, support programs, and lodging for family members of cancer patients in the cancer centers.
The opening team lap at 11:30 am was awesome, and the closing team lap at 11:30 pm with our candles lit was beautiful! New York Pizzeria did an amazing job, as always, with the Survivor Dinner! The Survivor’s and Caregiver’s laps always make us teary eyed. The luminaria ceremony is the most moving part of the whole event. Celebrating those who have fought and won, and still fighting cancer, and remembering those that we have lost. All in all it was a great event and we can’t wait until next year!! Everyone is invited to join us!!
