Relay for Life was July 13-14th at Century High School in Pocatello. This is one of my favorite events of the year and I look forward to the all-nighter with friends and family. This was my 4th Relay for Life and I took on the role of Team Captain of the Idaho Central Relay for Life team. The planning starts in the beginning of the year as several volunteers come together to raise funds for the American Cancer Society.  I recruited Whitney to help me this year so we could make it one of the best Relay for Life events. I had a personal goal to raise $500 and the grand total for personal fundraising was (drum roll please)....................................


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.
