Relay for Life only 7 days away

Mike Gabbard, Co Chair of the American Cancer Society’s 2008 Relay for Life, sent us the following blog to remind everyone that it's not too late to support this important event:

The American Cancer Society's Relay For Life-Norwood is only 7 days away. It starts next Friday June 20th, at Shea Stadium.

* Opening Ceremonies begin at 6 pm with the Survivor Lap & Survivor Dinner to follow.

* Calling ALL Cancer Survivors...please come down and be our honored guest. Free t-shirt, dinner and gift.

* Luminary Ceremony begins at 9 pm. This is a very heartwarming ceremony. All the names on the luminary bags that encircle the track will be read aloud.

* Luminary bags can be bought in honor of a survivor or in memory of someone who you've lost.

* Stop by anytime between 6pm Friday thru noon on Saturday. It's 18 hours of Celebrating, Remembering and Fighting Back.

* A LOT OF FUN for all ages. Very family oriented event
