That's the amount raised for the American Cancer Society by this past weekend's 2007 Relay for Life in La Jolla! Thanks to everyone who donated time, money, and possessions to this amazing fundraising effort.
I participated in the 24-hour event, along with Cass, Regina, Melissa B., Heather, Norma, Jeff, and others. It was powerful to walk in the survivor's lap and well worth the sleep deprivation and blisters! It was beautiful to see the track lit up with luminarae (?) in honor of those who are still fighting for their lives, for survivors, and for those who have lost their battles. More than anything, it was empowering to do my small part to raise funds and awareness for an organization that serves so many and that has been so helpful in my life. Thanks, ACS.
