Relay for Life

It was a day of remembrance, celebration and giving back at the Edwardsburg Relay for Life 2013.

I want to thank coach Heather Hartley and all the Edwardsburg cheerleaders who participated, along with their families. Because of people like you, lives are being touched!

We are fortunate to have a coach who truly cares about mentoring our girls. It’s a passion for her to push the girls to be the best they can be in every aspect of their lives.

Going into the day of relay we had raised $2,400. I had secretly set a personal team goal of $5,000. Little did I know how awesome we’d do the day of the relay. The last figure I heard was not far below $5,000!

There are a lot of individuals and businesses who donated items to the team to auction off the day of relay. Those items alone brought in over $1,000! Also, many provided food and snacks for the Edwardsburg cheerleaders. I would like to shout out a huge thanks to all those people and companies. Special thanks to Bradley Blackburn Jr. for bringing out your car and putting it on display.

Thanks to all the cheerleaders who were willing to be dunked in the dunk tank. Thanks to Chad King, Jodi Rozycki, Kevin Dean (athletic director) and coach Hartley for doing this as well!

It’s because all these people and businesses that we might just be one step closer to finding a cure for this evil called cancer.

Thank you to everyone who was involved.
