West Covina Relay For Life 2012

This year I participated in the West Covina Relay For Life on June 2, 2012.
Our team was called Fighting Familia.

I walked in honor and in memory of my Mother In Law who left us too soon on December 24, 2011. I participated to make a difference in the fight against Cancer.

It was a 24 hour event and the goal is to fundraise and walk the event for 24 hours. Since there were only 7 walkers on our team and we couldn't gather enough participants to walk for us, we did not last the full 24 hours. I'm hoping next year we make a goal to have a representative from our team always walking so we make the 24 hour goal. It can be done because there were a couple teams who accomplished it.

The positive is that raised a total of $2,155.00 as a whole. Not bad for a first year team!

Here are some photo's from the event.
