#AdventurousApril: Relay for Life

28 Apr

I’m a true believer in finding adventures everywhere you go. (Mainly because I can’t afford a trip to Spain, but also because it’s important to always have fun!) My club, Rotaract, participated in Relay for Life a couple of weekends ago and we had so much fun. We even raised nearly $800 for the American Cancer Society. #proud

Relay for Life is a 12-hour event that occurs around the nation to raise money for the American Cancer Society. People either donate money or pledge a certain amount for every lap that they walk. Luminaries lit up along the mall and from 6:00 PM to 6:00 AM, we camped out on the mall and had so much fun while doing it.

Different types of entertainment happen throughout the night. The Charles Darwin Experience performed and there was a drag show, too! My club had a blast, while honoring those who have battled through cancer.

Participating for Relay for Life is an incredible experience. It’s a fun event with a  serious cause. Many points in the evening are filled with sentiments and emotion, but there are also many laughs and cheers throughout the night. You can dedicate a luminary to someone you know who has battled through cancer or walk for the cause.

Participating with a group of people is a great bonding experience, too. Camping out on the mall for twelve hours while being sleep deprived is a sure way to create some loud laughs and great memories. It was definitely an adventure.
