Wings Of Hope Week 14 Update… Only 40 Days Until The Race
There are only 40 days left before the Relay for Life!, Can you believe it?, We are still the number one team with a $1,000 lead over second place!, Our team is furiously working away to get ready for the big day.
First, I want to say how great it is to watch the Oscars and see commercials to raise awareness for cervical cancer. It is so important to raise awareness for all cancers, not just the pink one.
Second, a major thanks and virtual standing ovation go out to Angel McMellin for all of her hard work on our bake sale. Not only did she bake enough to feed the entire hospital, but she ran our event at the Johns Hopkins Outpatient Center and raised $320 for our team! And thank you again to our supporter, Kim Thompson, who donated her own baked goods to help us in our fundraising efforts.
Saturday’s team meeting was a fun lunch event and we covered a LOT of information. Thank you to All American Coin & Jewelry Company (www.aacoinco.com) for sponsoring our lunch. Those crab cakes definitely got the creative ideas flowing!
Important Information For Team Members;
In order to get an official Relay for Life participant shirt, you MUST raise $100 by March 10, 2010!
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.
