Relay for life

last weekend, Dillon and some of his friends, took part in a fundraiser for cancer research called, "Relay for life". Dillon was the team captain (one of many!) and they organize a group of people, came up with a team name and then set out to get sponsors. someone from their team had to be walking on the track at all times. i went down to take pictures and what a site! lots of campsites with grills, tents, balloons, decorations and more. there were activities at certain times (for example at 1:00 in the morning there was to be a hip hop dance lesson). it really looked like a fun time. and the students ended up raising about $110,000.00, which is so amazing!


  1. Great photos! Love the Pirates of the "Cure"ibbean-I might have to poach that for next year! My daughter's Relay for Life was last weekend here in Northern NJ. I was her team chaperone from midnight to 3:30 am. When she got home, she slept from 6 in the morning till 7 that night. I remember those days lol. Wonderful cause.
