We had a great time at Relay last year, but I won't lie. This year's Relay For Life was tough. I don't know why. Maybe it is because I did 3 Relays. Maybe it is because of the health challenges I had. But whatever it was, I am glad we did it and glad it is over. I finished up last night with $940 total. I came to Relay last night with $909 in the bag and got another $31 at Relay. I was disappointed that we finished up $60 under our goal of $1000 for this Relay. Then an amazing thing happened. My friend Debra messaged me on Facebook and said, you got your $60. WOW! WE DID IT! WE MADE $1000 at the Waco Relay For Life! That brings our total for all three Relays to $2276. OVER $2000 MADE FOR AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY RELAY FOR LIFE! I didn't do this alone. I did it with a lot of help from you, my friends. A LOT OF HELP. And I love each and every one of you for all your help. I talked a lot about you last night. God bless each and every one of you. You have made a difference!
What is stitching for a cure? It started as a year long project to help save lives. We were stitching ornaments that decorated a tree that was raffled off on Thanksgiving 2009. The money raised went to American Cancer Society.
We have raised over $1000 with that project. We went on in 2010 to stitch quilt blocks and to make 3 quilts. Those quilts raised over $2000. Amazing. My focus has turned to a new cause. Juvenile Diabetes. I am not sure what our next project will be, but I am sure that our stitching will play a big part in this adventure. Come join us by stitching or simply following us on our journey!
I hope to educate anyone reading this blog on Juvenile Diabetes. But mostly, we want to stitch for a cure!
