Who is Ready to Relay Baby??

Okay I knew that I was going to forget something on my last post. I went to the Relay for Life captain's meeting on Tuesday night. We currently have only 3 people on my team, but I know lots of you have told me you were interested in doing it again. My team name again this year is We Cancer-vive and it will be on June 7th, 2008 starting 2:00 pm until June 8th, 2008 8:00 am. It will be at The Ranch- Larimer County Fairgrounds and Event Complex off I 25 and crossroads Blvd. This year we will be doing our relay (Loveland) simultaneously with the Fort Collins Relay. We aren't joining together but they way it was explained they will have tracks right next to each other. I think this should be really neat to see others I know participating from Fort Collins. I will probably be staying there the whole time and I was told they have RV parking so we will probably bring our trailer to have more comfortable accommodations for over night. We need to go out there and see exactly how it is set up. I think it will work best if your family wants to participate to just sign up one of you, unless you and your spouse want to take be on different shifts for walking. I know there were many of us that brought our families and it was a very fun event for the kids as well. If you are interested in joining the team Click Here. Or if you just would like to donate to our team Click Here to donate online. I think you can also purchase Luminarias that will be set up at the event in honor or in memory of a someone that is close to you that has been diagnosed from the web site. Last year it was really neat to see all the luminarias throughout the night.
I think we will try to do a garage sale again since that raised some money for our team last year and they told us at our meeting on Tuesday that Nick-n-Willy's Pizza is going to help teams raise funds. There are many locations here in Colorado. One in Loveland and one in Fort Collins for our area. They will be charging teams $1 per card and the cards have 10 punches on them good for a free large pizza per punch. We will charge $10 per card so $9 goes back to our team and more importantly RFL. You can't be a deal like a buck for a large pizza. What a generous sponsor of RFL. Please email me at if you would like to purchase one or more of these cards and I will get them to you. Here is a map of locations through out the US if you are a reader of my blog, not from around my area. Also if you are on our team let me know if you would be willing to try and sell the cards and I will get you a handful.
Any other ideas for trying to raise funds would also be appreciated so comment away. They say that doing fundraisers at Relay is also a good way to up the dollars. I know other teams did their own auctions, sold beverages (soda/water), and many other things. Are we interested in doing this at the event this year?
