So I've never seen a thread on this, and wanted to see how the Pit is involved with stuff like this.

I've been doing Relay For Life for a few years, since I was a junior (I think? maybe senior) in high school, so for about 4-5 years. I took a couple years off because of Army stuff, living on my own, couldn't really do it. However for about a year now I've been living with my wife, who's a HUGE Relayer, so we've gotten back into it in our new city

I've just been a team member. Never any kinda leadership.

My wife's always been super gung-ho about it, and likes taking on leadership positions. She's the Event Co-Chair (or something) for the Lakewood, Washington, Relay for Life. She loves doing it and so do I

Personally, I do it because of a close friend's mom who died from cancer when we were young in high school. My grandfather also died from Cancer, when I was little. A close friend of mine, here at work, is also a Cancer survivor.

I think it's really important to volunteer, and I think that Relay for Life is one of the best organizations out there for stuff like this.

For those who don't know, it's a fundraising organization/event for the American Cancer Society. It's the biggest one in the country/world.

Does anyone else here participate?



PPS: I was involved in the Pembroke Pines Relay for Life in Florida, and am now involved in the Lakewood Relay for Life in Washington
My God, it's full of stars!

I did it twice I think, back when I was in high school. It's fun, but my legs always hated me for the next couple of days.

DON'T MAKE ME DESTROY YOU!

I went once after my aunt died.

I thought people were very disrespectful during the emotional parts of the nights so I never went back.
