You, a breast cancer survivor, are walking in the Victory Lap, opening the Relay For Life®. The field is full of young people, on their feet, clapping, smiling, cheering and taking your photo as you and other survivors pass by.
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life® is a national fundraising effort, organized and sponsored by local communities. A Relay® can take place anytime and is often an annual event. Participants walk, run, or jog around a track raise money per lap completed. Despite a Texas thunderstorm, donations of $67,083.00 were collected after the Relay® that I attended at Texas State University on April 13 and 14, 2007.
