2010 Relay For Life of Southern Lucas County
"Relay Goes to the Movies"
May 21-22, 2010
6pm-noon at Maumee High School stadium
Come join your community in the fight against CANCER!!!
Relay For life is a unique 18 hour fundraising event, where teams camp out while taking turns walking or running the track during the entire event. Even if you are not a member of a team, everyone is invited to come and enjoy the fun, food, ceremonies, music, and live entertainment, while helping to raise funds to improve the quality of life for Cancer patients today and the outlook for those diagnosed in the future. Thank You for Supporting us in the fight against Cancer!
I am the Team Captain and Tomasina is the Co-Captain for "Celebration of Hope For a Cure." The team is going to be decorating in a "Star Wars Theme", and hopes to have several of the team members dressed up as their favorite "Star Wars Character". We are planning on selling Superior Catering Sack Lunches, Caramel Popcorn, Sno-Cones, and homemade crafts. We will have raffle baskets, including a couple Breast Cancer Baskets. Leslie Simmons, a licensed massage therapist and Psalm 1 Kite Group (lite up kites), will also be joining us. And we will have some fun kid games, including Ohio State Tailgate Golf.
We can decorate our Luminaria bags, but the money has to be turned in first, before they will even give us the bags, so if you want to decorate them have the money to me by May 12. I have to turn the bags in before May 18th. Luminaria's are a candle lite "In Honor of or In Memory of", a loved one, and are $10.00, they are placed around the track.
If you are unable to attend, but would like to donate to the team, go to and search for "Celebration of Hope For a Cure."
If you are a Cancer Survivor or know someone who is, we would love to have you/them there to help "kick off" Relay For Life. There is a Survivor Reception at 6:00pm, please call Erin Matheson at 1(888)227-6446 ext.5211
Thank You:)
