This past Saturday, I participated in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. This is my third Relay, and the first where I was actually cold! Usually, we are all burning up. Not this time; by 9 pm, it was in the low 50s, which doesn't seem that cold until you're out in it. We were all bundled up like a bunch of mummies!
It was gratifying to see the number of people wearing purple shirts (meaning that they're a cancer survivor). On one hand, it's kind of depressing to know that that many people have or have had cancer, but on the other hand it's nice to know that they are still around to attend an event such as this.
If you'd like to donate to this very worthy cause, it's not too late. Here's the link: Relay for Life--Garland--2013. All money received goes to the ACS to find a cure!
