Relay for Life

Monday, April 28th, 2008

May 9th and 10th here in Gahanna is the Relay for Life.  Our church has a team of individuals that will be walking/running in the Relay.  Those of you that may not know, this is the American Cancer Society’s big fundraiser.

This year I signed up for it and will be walking one hour on Saturday as part of the team.  Each team is responsible for walking/running continuous for the Relay’s 18 hours.   We are  doing this on the Gahanna Middle School track and will have to be there regardless of weather, so pray for no rain.

Also, I have joined a team of volunteers to walk with recovering heart patients.  American Heart Association and Mount Carmel Hospital have joined efforts to create a program to help individuals recovering from heart issues get out and walk.  This is the first site in America and soon another Beta site will follow in Seattle.  Depending on how these two sites grow, will determine if this program will go national.

Right now we are only meeting once a week for a hours to walk, but if the program takes off then there will be more choices of walking times.  I hope patients and their families will find this program useful and give those who need it a buddy to walk with them.
