Relay for Life

Team Spiritus sold rides around the track on this bed in order to raise some extra $$

The 24 hr Relay for Life to support the American Cancer Society was a huge success here in Fairbanks. This years relay pulled in $220,000 -- which is about $100K more than the 2006 relay. Our team "Spiritus" contributed about $4000 to the grand total. Good Job Team Spiritus!! There were a few hundred people walking around the track from 6pm Fri through 6pm Sat. It was a great turnout. Unfortunately I missed a bunch of the activities on Saturday because I was out on the Hot Springs adventure race thingy.

I thought relay for life was just 24 hours long? When are you going to update your blog slacker.
