Relay For Life of Thurston County • 2009

An awesome start to the Relay...

This is the first time in 8 years that I didn't stay the night at the event. Thomas is sound asleep and I am downloading images from tonight...loving how they're turning out.

Our team was at about $17,600 heading into the Relay. We strategized a few ways to improve our lap bead sales (at about $750 last year) we made big posters and staked them into the ground around the track and personally handed out flyers to each tent site.

The results were fantastic. By 7:15 pm, 1 hour and fifteen minutes into the Relay, we'd already sold more lanyards than we sold during the entire event last year. Debbie's husband Bruce did a quick run to Fred Meyer's for a few hundred more yards of string...and we were stocking back up! Can't wait to see where we end up!

Just a few quick photos before heading to bed...

The Survivor's Lap

Thomas's first Relay as a team member - loving the Relay onesie, a gift from Brian and Amy Marlow.

And the luminaria glowing. The team next to us was selling glowing balloons - love seein g the extended exposure as the girls walked the track.

Can't wait to share more!
