It’s been a while since I updated this site, with all the hoopla surrounding our “Mammary Mile” to raise money for the American Cancer Society! We passed our mile of decorated and dedicated bras and have raised over $10,000 and the bras will all be on display at the 10th Relay For Life this weekend in Lockport!

There is so much going on at Relay, from 2 p.m. Saturday June 19th to the closing ceremony at 6 a.m. Sunday June 20th. You can check it all out at www.relayforlife.org/lockportny

Come and celebrate “The Magic of Birthdays” as we celebrate all the years we’ve helped add to the lives of those battling cancer! You don’t have to be on a team to join us. Think of it as a big carnival of love and hugs, with plenty to do! From a cake decorating contest (we get to eat them at Midnight) to a kid’s tent full of activities and a KanJam tournament, there is something for everyone. Our HUGE Chinese auction has some great prizes and wonderful personal stories on Memory Baskets. In a couch potato mode? Just bring yourself a chair and sit down and enjoy the event! Watch the parade of survivors, then teams, then caregivers from your own comfy spot (Opening ceremonies at 6 p.m.) . It’s not about athletics! It’s about sharing the fight and showing support for those who battle cancer, fromĀ infants to seniors.

We have plenty of food, beverages and snacks for you to purchase so you don’t need to bring anything but your enthusiasm! All the proceeds go to the American Cancer Society, too. Rain? Heat? Cold? You name it, we’ve Relayed in it, and we’ll be at Emmet Bellknap School on Saturday no matter what Mother Nature throws at us. Please join us as we celebrate our community’s efforts in the fight against cancer! We”ll pass a MILLION AND A HALF DOLLARS RAISED this year, in our ten years of the Barker/Lockport Relay For Life. We’re celebrating ten years of love, hugs, tears and joy as a Relay family!

Join us! Bring your cameras, bring your checkbooks (all donations to the ACS are tax deductible), bring your fighting spirit and your party hat!!

I’ll post the whole Relay schedule here later today!
