Relay for Life

We interrupt this regularly scheduled daily blog entry to note that on the evening of Friday, August 18th I'll be participating in the American Cancer Society Relay for Life event, along with a team from the 181st Transportation Battalion. Quoting from the ACS website, "Relay For Life is a fun-filled overnight event designed to celebrate survivorship and raise money for research and programs of your American Cancer Society. During the event, teams of people gather at schools, fairgrounds, or parks and take turns walking or running laps. Each team tries to keep at least one team member on the track at all times." We're going to have people walking or running all night long (I think I'll be in the walking category!) here. Our Battalion is doing this in support of one of the soldiers from our attached field artillery units, Specialist Brown. He was diagnosed with cancer about a month ago. If you want to donate to the ACS directly, feel free to do so. If you want to join your donation with our battalion's, email me privately and we'll make arrangements. Or, you can try to locate a Relay for Life in your own area!

I added the Relay for Life event to my Blog and asked people to please read your blog and donate if they are able. I support the American Cancer Society for a lot of reasons, two of the most important are my dad & a brother-in-law died of I am also happy to say, I have been smoke free for three days now!!!! Now I am perfect....LOL....I've always teased everyone by saying smoking was my only bad habit!!!! If I didn't do that I would be perfect!!!! (please know I am just joking!!!!)

Hope all is well!
