Relay for Life

After walking around the track for 12 hours, we were able to witness the fruit of our efforts at Relay for Life - we raised $259,823.10! That's more than a quarter million for cancer research :)

Relay was such a success this year in my eyes.

1) Our ACF team raised $5500 total! THAT'S AMAZING! Especially taking into consideration the nature of our Asian culture, that asking others for money is looked down upon.

2) A good amount of our team stayed for the whole 12 hours!

3) The event was very symbolic. It was freaking cold with some rain and a little snow. Because of the weather and lack of sleep, we were better able to sympathize with the struggles of the cancer patients as we huddled for warmth and leaned on each other for support.

4) Great fellowship with friends :)

Thanks to all those who supported me!
