As you may have noticed, the LadyBallers will be participating in the Downtown Orlando Relay for Life event coming up this May. I have taken the lead for our LB Team as cancer has greatly impacted various members of my family and friends. We feel that this is an important event and an important cause.
To give you a bit of info about the event if you are unfamiliar, Relay for Life benefits the American Cancer Society. Relay is "a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. At Relay, teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events and 18 hours in length." It will be a challenge for us, but a challenge worthy of our efforts and energy.
