We learned about Relay for Life today in school. Relay for Life is the American Cancer Society's signature activity, and is the largest non-profit fundraising event in the world! It involves the whole community; schools, businesses, churches, clubs and families - young and old. Relay for Life is usually an overnight event, but we are going to have a Mini-Relay at our school during the day. The fifth grade class will be sponsoring this activity. The relay will be held on Friday, June 13th. The relay will begin at 9:30am with an opening ceremony.

Each class is going to have a team, and I will be a team member. Each team member has been asked to set a goal and raise money to reach that goal. The money raised will be donated to the American Cancer Society for research, education, service, and advocacy. The American Cancer Society provides support services to patients with cancer in our community, such as I Can Cope, Look Good...Feel Better, a scholarship fund for childhood cancer survivors, as well as camp programs. They have contributed over $25 billion to cancer research.

The last day I can accept donations is Thursday, June 5th.

During the relay, I may walk in honor of a friend or family member that is a cancer survivor. I will be walking in honor of Rick and Jessica Figard who are both cancer survivors and are my Daddy and Mommy.

Thank you so much for your support. This event is going to be a great success and lots of fun!
