Even though I fell short of my personal goal I was able to (with the help of Whitney and My ICCU Team Members) raise a total of $2701.43. We organized a penny drive, jean day, kiwi loco fundraiser, and we sold several luminaries and raffle tickets. Several people also made personal donations. HUGE THANKS to everyone that stepped in and help raise funds for such an amazing event.
It is great to have a time to get together to celebrate those that have lost their lives and cheer on those that are currently battling this deadly disease!! We had the best turnout this year and the most people stay all night. Here are a few pics from the night:

We walked through the wind and the rain and we pushed through to the end. My feet were sore and I was tired but it was worth it to walk for my DAD! I miss him so much and feel so close to him every year at relay.
