Do y'all know what Relay for Life is? If you don't what are you doin' with your life? Yes, that's a serious question and not one of those rhetorical questions I always pose. I got involved with RFL back in college and have been participating for about six years. When I came home from college I was so excited that my momma's gym had decided to start getting involved. Basically it is a walk a thon to raise money for cancer research, treatment etc. Each year our town is always in the top donors. Heck one of the middle schools raises over $20,000 each year. This past year we decided to walk in honor of our family fran Brent. He's the one I've been talking about that's on hospice with the cancerous tumors.
But one thing I've never understood is why our town always does theirs in the fall. It was so dern cold, y'all and we was struggling. The group picture was those of us left at 5 am. In college our RFL was always in the spring and I miss that. 40's may not seem cold for some but for us Texans that's very cold.
But in the end the point is to be uncomfortable for a good cause. Cancer is not picky and will inhabit anyone it can. I'm always willing to get out of my comfort zone for a good cause.
What are some organizations/ events y'all like to participate in?
