Hope for a Cure
Photo-A-Day #1526

Today Allison, Eva and I participated in the Relay for Life at our local High School. We had a really nice time. Eva enjoyed running around the track, stopping and looking at all the luminarias and spending time with her Memere. I had a great time taking photos all over the place and I even did a video, I’ll do more tomorrow and put it all together too.

While making the videos there were four teen girls who followed me for much of the shot. I didn’t know they were there until I got back to our tents. It is pretty funny, can’t wait to shot you the video. For now here are some shots I took.

Rainbow at Relay for Life
It was raining when we started the relay but the sun came out and so did a full rainbow, it was so big I could not get it all in the shot.

So many great people helped us out with donations and we raised $375 here at BenSpark.com. Our Team The Sacred Heart Stewards raised over $9,000 – So Awesome!

More donations can still be received, only $125 away from our $500 goal!!

  1. I was thinking yesterday afternoon what great light it was with the storm clouds clearing and the late afternoon light coming in. Your photos really make use of that.

    I love the top shot. Even though Ronald McDonald frightened me as a child.

    Andrea,
    There was some great light and I wasn’t even using he good camera, I would have overthought that one though, so I just used the little Canon one.

    Baba,
    We didn’t hit our $500 goal but we got very very close.

    Mo,
    So sorry to hear about your friend. We are only too happy to participate in this event, it is a wonderful family event and a great thing for our town. We enjoy being a part of the church team very much.

    The rainbow was a very nice touch.

    Dina,
    Those shirts were definitely attention getters as was my XShot. You have to check out the video.
