WHY I RELAY...American Cancer Society Relay For Life in Lakeville

Why Wouldn't I?

On Friday July 24th Anne and I will be RELAYING with over 200 others at Lakeville South High School in the ACS Relay For Life in Lakeville. Relay For Life is symbolic of the cancer patient's battle. As the sun sets, it symbolizes the end of what was thought to be a healthy life. The overcoming darkness throughout the night represents how scary the disease can seem and those dedicated participants that choose to stay show that this is not a battle that is fought alone. Then, with the sunrise comes a new day for the cancer survivors with hope and energy to keep fighting the disease. 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 in their own community. And our efforts at Relay For Life can help the American Cancer Society to keep working toward a cancer-free future.

Wouldn't you?

Craig's Cruisers Relay Team was formed in memory of my dad and Anne’s "Gaga", Craig W. Letch. There have been great advances toward the cure for the brain cancer that took Craig. In fact, Senator Ted Kennedy is now living with the exact type of tumor Daddy had. Your contribution helps turn research into cures. We want to invite you to show your support in the ongoing fight against cancer by joining us for this year’s event. Please click on the links 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. To request a Luminaria in honor or in memory of your loved one, please send me their name(s).
Fighting cancer is a team effort. The impact we can make together is much greater than what any of us could do alone. By supporting our team, you will be a part of a life-changing event that celebrates the lives of those who have battled cancer, remembers loved ones lost, and empowers all of us to fight back against a disease that takes too much.

Again, your contribution is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
God Bless You! Carla and Anne
