I want to invite you to please come join in the fun and listen to music at The Relay for Life event to be held at the Arroyo High school track (Grant Avenue, San Lorenzo) beginning Saturday, August 9th 9:00 am until Sunday, Aug 10th 8:00 am (closing ceremony) for the American Cancer Society. Come whenever you can and stay as long as you would like, but please bring some donation money so you can participate in the many games and activities or to buy special trinkets or food presented by the 15 teams in the Relay. All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society.
My team named thenotdyinggirl came together to address Pediatric Cancer, which is an unfinished item on the bucket list of my niece, Lauren McCullough. The name is from her blog http://thenotdyinggirl.com in which she narrates her experience of getting the most out of her life while fighting Ewing’s Sarcoma.

Our team will sponsor the “swim lap” at 5:00 pm. Relay participants will don pool gear and “swim” the lap around the track. Don’t miss the very special Luminaria Ceremony at 9:00 pm which will include a perspective offered by my sister Deanne, Mom of Lauren, and my performance of the song I wrote for all parents, but especially for Deanne, called “Let You Go”. This is my first Relay, but I have heard they are very inspirational and fun.
If you are interested in music here are the bands that will play through out the day: The Fossil Farm Band at 10:00 am, The Standing Still Band at 3:00 pm, Hudson Street Band at 6:00 pm, and Bayfire at 7:30 pm
If you can not come, but wish to make a donation, this is the link to my page: http://main.acsevents.org/goto/CatherineKavasch
Thank you for helping to fight cancer!
