Before I recap my weekend I want to give a big thank you to all the family and friends that supported me with a donation to the Relay for Life event. With all your contributions I was able to reach $435 for our team, Powered by ME*, which by the way, was also the largest fundraising team in the entire event. Woohoo! Our team also took home the "Most Engaged" award for fundraising and participation. This could not have been achieved without all our team members and support from family and friends. This year's relay marked the eleventh month of the passing of my wonderful mother, Tess (Ma-ma). Although she's no longer here, we remembered her with our family getting together and honoring those that have survived and remembering those that had passed. Her spirit will continue to live on.
It was hot, but that didn't stop all the people to come out and support. Our 6th year was as successful as the past five and as with every year there are always some fun events. This year was a team tug-o-war. We didn't win, but we sure gave one big fight. Here's a video and some pictures:

Again, Thank you all that have supported. Have a great start of the week!
