Relay for Life

Joined the Gasworks walking team for Relay for Life at Albert Park Lake. Relay for Life is a 24 hour event for anyone whose life has been touched by cancer - those who are living with cancer, caring for someone with cancer and those whose lives have been touched in some way by cancer. Is there anyone who does not fit into one of these categories? I love participating in this event each year especially for the moving ceremony held as it gets dark. Teams/groups camp overnight and the dedicated walk laps around the campsite throughout the night - the point being that the nights can be long when you are living with cancer. With the dawn comes renewed hope and possibility.  I like all the symbolic elements of the Relay for Life - the 24 hours reminding us that when you are living with cancer its a 24 hour a day thing.
