Cancer Sucks! And it affects you, and it affects me.
We call ourselves “Panters” (not to be confused with panthers) because we are by no means athletes – we will be panting our way around the track.
Relay For Life provides the unique opportunity to get together with family and friends to CELEBRATE cancer survivors, REMEMBER and honour loved ones lost to cancer, and FIGHT BACK for a future without cancer. And we do exactly that – with a heavy emphasis on the “celebrate” part. Basically we spend 24 hours partying and making fools of ourselves because we are excited to have taken your money and contributed it towards a world without cancer.
The Cancer Society's theme this year is "Fight Back" and they encourage everyone to dress up and decorate their tent space accordingly. We tend to do our own theme - "Pink. And leaning towards tacky" Perhaps I'll find some pink boxing gloves to fight back with.
