Lakewood Relay for Life had their 2011 KICKOFF Rally on Tuesday, November 16 at Little Church on the Prairie and what a fantastic turn out it was. Almost 50 relayers attended and we reached our goal of 25 teams preregistered as we introduced our theme for 2011, CARS.
The CARS theme inspired us to design and produce a tee shirt with REV UP on the front and tire tracks on the back, overlaid with RELAY DRIVES US. Anyone wishing to support our Relay, and purchase a tee shirt, is welcome to buy them by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be sure and mark your calendars for our 2011 Lakewood Relay event, June 3, 6:00 PM through June 4, 12:00 PM at Harry E Lang Stadium behind Clover Park High School. Come out and support your community of Lakewood as we Celebrate with our survivors, Remember those less fortunate and Fight Back to find the cure for cancer.
Almost everyone has been touched by cancer. You are a survivor. A loved one has cancer. A friend, co-worker or peer has this dreaded disease. Cancer knows no limits, has no age restrictions and does not care about race, color or creed, male or female, tall or short.
But you can help end this disease by becoming involved, by helping us raise funds for cancer research, advocacy, patient services and education. Contact Mike Darrah at email@example.com and join in as we race for the cure.
On the third Tuesday of each month we hold our Relay Rally at Little Church on the Prairie, 6310 Motor Ave SW, 6:30-7:30. Please join us, find out what Relay For Life is all about and help us celebrate with more birthdays. Help us as we honor our survivors and caregivers.
We’ll see you January 18th at 6:30.
Remember, cancer is not a choice, but your help and involvement is.
