Winter is upon us here in Eastern Iowa. Scott tried out the new snowthrower (yes, you read that right…snowTHROWER…just like it said on the box) and we’ve both decided it was the best money we have ever spent at Costco.

Relay for Life 2012

This year I am again participating in Relay for Life, an event sponsored by the American Cancer Society to raise money that helps communities across the world celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. Please consider to my Relay for Life Team, Heart & Sole, and help us create a world with more birthdays!

If you would like to honor, remember, or support a cancer survivor at the Relay for Life event on June 15, be sure to check out the page.

Thank you for your support!

Relay for Life Luminaria

Hello and Happy Holidays!

This year I am on the Johnson County Relay for Life planning committee.  More specifically, I am the Luminaria Chairperson.  During the Relay for Life event on June 24, we will have a special Luminaria ceremony in which we light candles in honor of or in memory of friends or loved ones who have had cancer.  If you purchase a Luminaria, it will be on display during this ceremony.  The Luminaria you purchase can be designed with a photo, name, and phrase. Let me know if you are interested in purchasing.  They make good gifts for this Holiday season and are only $10…and all the money goes to the fight against cancer!

You can order luminarias today by completing either the online Luminaria form or the mail-in Luminaria form, both of which are available via the “Luminaria” tab on our website. Holiday certificates “in memory” and “in honor” of your loved ones also are available on the “Luminaria” page. If you have questions, please contact me.

Not only am I on the Relay planning committee, but I am also participating in Relay!  When I registered online, I was issued my own personal fundraising web page. It explains what Relay For Life is and why I chose to get involved. My web page also has my fundraising goal and how much money I’ve raised so far.  Please visit my page, and while you’re there….why not make a donation to the American Cancer Society?  Your donation will help the American Cancer Society create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. The amount you donate will count towards my fundraising goal.  Thank you so much for your help!

Happy holidays!
