My friend Laura and I recently formed an American Cancer Society "Relay for Life" team in honor of my mom, JoAnn, in support of her fight with cancer (which she is winning!). We have appropriately named the team "JoAnn's Knockouts!"
The 24-hour walk begins on Friday, June 20th at Onota Lake in Pittsfield, and we would love to see our team grow. At least one team member should be on the track at all times, so some of us are camping out by the lake. It should be lots of fun! And I have heard that the luminaries (purchased in honor of those affected by cancer) make for a beautiful scene at night by the lake.
I encourage you to visit our "Relay for Life" page, where you can JOIN or DONATE or PURCHASE LUMINARIES.
Laura had bracelets made for supporters (of which there are many!), and we continue to collect donations.
We have also been collecting signatures on a pair of giant pink boxing gloves, which we were thrilled to present to my mom this past Easter weekend (when we told her about the team we formed in her honor). She is excited!
The giant pink gloves are our inspiration for the team T-shirt design:
Many, many thanks!
