Relay for Life...Cancer Walk

The joy of summer is upon us! We'll all find time between the graduation parties to get out and enjoy the earth and life.
Speaking of life, we all have been affected in some ways by cancer, either a survivor or a loved one that is currently in the fight, fought the fight, or sadly lost the fight. I've decided to put forth my best effort and help those WIN the fight by participating in the craft show at the annual Relay for Life Cancer Walk in Delano, MN.
My nephew (Bradley) was diagnosed with Wilm's Cancer of the kidney, at the tender age of 1. He DID win that fight and is now an active 3 year old. Most of my family and my sister-in-law's family are participating and will be involved in activities the night of the walk. I, along with other MN crafters, will also have my jewelry designs at the 'craft show' part of the relay, where 25% of my profits will go toward cancer research. Stop on out and say HI or give a donation for a great cause!
When: July 31st, 2009
Time: 4:30 pm to 9:00 pm (the relay is 24 hours)
Where: Delano City Park (rain or shine).
