Help us fight cancer by supporting Relay For Life!:

Hi Everyone,

I am going to do the "Relay For Life" to benefit the American Cancer Society, this is a overnight walking event from 7pm to 7am, then I am going to run the Grayson Day 5K road race at 7:30 that morning.

Besides being a little crazy, I am doing it to raise funds for the American Cancer Society and I need your help.

I want your money!

I've been spending some time thinking of the people I knew that died from Cancer, both my grandfathers for starters, and many others. But then I started to think of the people that I knew that HAD and SURIVED cancer, this was a longer list.

We are making great strides in stomping out cancer and this is how we pay for it.

Folks, this is how we pay for it, we do crazy things like walk all night, and then the real crazy ones run a 5k.

So, we need your money, plain and simple, it’s the money that makes it all work. No one else is going to do it for you. You are either going to have to come walk with us, and I wish you would OR you’re going to have to get out your checkbook and do what you can.

Please help me, I set a modest goal to raise $500.

Please visit my site and click the donate button, give what you can.

This way we can both pay if forward.

Good Karmas king.

Can you believe that more than 1.3 million people will be diagnosed with cancer in the United States this year? Those are staggering statistics, but there is hope. Each of us can do something to save lives and help those already fighting this disease. That's why I've decided to take action against cancer by supporting the American Cancer Society Relay For Life® event in my community.

Relay For Life is an overnight event that brings our community together to help support the American Cancer Society and its lifesaving mission to eliminate cancer as a major health problem. The Society works hard every day to prevent cancer and save lives by supporting groundbreaking research, affecting public policies that protect us from cancer, and educating people on how to prevent or detect cancer early. The Society helps people with cancer right here in our own community, and our efforts at Relay For Life can help the American Cancer Society to keep working toward a cancer-free future.

I want to invite you to show your support in the ongoing fight against cancer by teaming up with us for this year's Relay. Please click on the link below for more information, including details on the inspirational Survivors' Lap and the moving Luminaria Ceremony. We hope to see you there! If you can't join us, will you please visit the site and make a donation to support our efforts? Either way, you will make a real difference in the lives of people facing cancer and in the lives of the people who love them. Thank you!
