The heat is on!,   There are only 54 days left until the Relay for Life at Johns Hopkins University.   We are 60% of the way to our goal with a,   total of $2,991.00.   Who is going to be the person to break the $3,000.00 mark? Will it be you?

Again, if you haven’t all ready, I encourage our team members to log in to their participant centers on the ACS website and start updating their personal pages for donations.  ,   There is also an application on facebook that will help you with meeting your $100 personal goals.   Both of these tools will provide donators with official receipts from the American Cancer Society.

We have a lot of exciting things happening the first week of March!

Thursday, March 4th from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. we are holding our own bake sale at Johns Hopkins Outpatient Center, 601 N Caroline Street, Baltimore, MD.   We need food donations and volunteers to help us run our booth.   You do not have to be a team member to help us, our supporters are just as important as our relayers.   Please contact Angel (angelmcmellin@live.com) or myself (chrisp730@yahoo.com) if you want to help.

Friday, March 5th from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. there is a relay wide fundraiser at Johns Hopkins University.   We need volunteers and fundraising ideas.   If you are interested or want more information, please contact me at chrisp730@yahoo.com.

Saturday, March 6th at 11:30 a.m. we have a team meeting at M&S Grill, 201 E Pratt Street, Baltimore, MD.   This is an open meeting, so if you have joined team Wings of Hope yet please join us.

We are currently holding two online fundraisers:,   The first contest is all thanks to our wonderful friends and supporters at Dear Thyroid.   We are encouraging the Dear Thyroid community to form fundraising teams to help us in our goal for the American Cancer Society.   The first team to raise $3,000 wins TEN free “Invisible No More” bracelets; the first team to raise $1,500.00 wins FIVE free bracelets; the first team to raise $750.00 wins THREE free bracelets; and the first team to raise $500.00 wins TWO free bracelets.   For more information, contact me or visit us at http://main.acsevents.org/goto/wings2010.   The contest ends March 16th!

Our second online fundraiser is to reward one lucky team member.   The first team member to raise $500 between February 7th and February 28th wins a $25 Macy’s Gift Card.   Will it be Jennifer Bridge, Rachel Markus or Samantha Kidwell?,   Go to http://main.acsevents.org/goto/wings2010 and donate in honor of your favorite team member today!

We would like to welcome our newest team member:,   Melissa Lorenzo.   Welcome to the team!

As always, we would like to thank the generous souls who donated to Wings of Hope this week:,   Danielle Collins, Elena Primost, Robyn Goode, Karen Welsh-Mulachy, and Lisa Hensley.

It is crunch time.   We need the support of everyone:,   our team members, our supporters, and our communities to ensure our success.   As you can see, there are numerous opportunities to support Wings of Hope, so send us an email today!

Until next week,

Wings of Hope

    The shirts that are being worn my Wings of HOPE team that have front KICKING THYROID CANCERS ASS Back IF Bitching was a CURE I would be in remission. Can you get them through your site or were they for the Relay team only. I see the shirts with front but does not state if it has anything on the back?
