A Relay For Life Inspired Collection: The 2010 Edition

Each year, we've designed a playlist of songs to inspire our team as we get ready to Relay.   

The original mix was a collection of songs that I'd pulled together from Relay peeps that I know and love (more details here).   This year, the songs are a collection of tunes to help us celebrate, remember and fight back.  As a team, we're rallying behind Jim Connolly -- in the lower right hand of the photo above.  He was diagnosed with kidney cancer in December, which has moved to his bones as well.  His daughters added three songs to this year's mix:  Blue Skies, Dream Big, and Here Comes the Sun. 

All good stuff.

And an awesome mix of introspective & 'fire it up' songs.

I'm giving away a copy of this year's CD to another Relayer -- to win, all you have to do is leave a comment -- tell me what Relay you are involved with and what you do -- are you a team member, captain, committee member...  :) Super simple!

I'll draw tomorrow night (Wednesday) at 6 pm Pacific -- so don't wait!

Hi Shelley!

Please put me in your drawing...go South Kitsap Relay!! :)

Heidi Anderson said...

Oh...I must add to my previous comment! My name is Heidi Anderson and I am the Event and Sponsorship Chair for the South Kitsap Relay for Life, which we hold each year in Port Orchard, Washington, at the South Kitsap High School. This year we are stepping up our game and I've begun the Get My Buzz On campaign. I've challenged our Relay to raise $225K and if they hit the mark, I will have all of my hair buzzed off at our event which will be held on June 11th & 12th. Go SK Relay!!!!!

Hi Shelley!
I am the Event Chair for the East Clark County Relay For Life that will be held June 5th & 6th at Washougal High School in Washougal, WA! 8th year and brand new facility (my alma mater as well)! I have been Relaying for 8 years now and on the Committee for 8 years! My grandparents invited me to come to a meeting 8 years ago because they were both cancer survivors! I have been Relaying for them. But recently lost my Grandma Dot Bahr on Feb. 16th to Stage 4 Lung Cancer. She battled for 6 months and was already a 31 year breast cancer survivor. I Relay for her and my two Grandpa's and for too many family and friends that have been lost over the years. And I Relay so that my 3 1/2 year old twin boys never have to hear the words, "You have cancer."

I'm Libby, and I relay at the Vancouver, WA. Relay, and home of one of the 2010 CPS-3 enrollment sites. I've been known to dress in the polyp man suit, do a lot with advocacy, team captain, committee member, sew a 8 foot long pink spandex walk thru colon... the list goes on.

I Relay because it allows me to make a difference in the lives of thousands that are currently battling the disease. I Relay in memory of family and friends that have lost the battle. Most of all, I Relay because it's the right thing to do.

Hi Shelley,
I have been a team captain for Relay for Life for 19 years - The Tacoma Event. I relay because I love seeing more & more Survivors on the track during the opening walk each year. Your enthusiasm was a great inspiration to me when you were with the Tacoma Event. Would love to win a copy of your collection. Joyce Walsh
