I promised myself a long time ago to change myself for the better.
I also decided that I would take whatever small steps I could to make a change in the world.
My latest endeavor is doing Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society. Relay for Life is a 24-hour walk at a local college campus, and there are several relay activities on the hour, a luminaria ceremony commemorating loved-ones battling cancer, and those who we have lost to cancer. My grandpa died from cancer in 1998, and I have been blessed to meet a few people during my time on this planet who are still fighting cancer to this day. And not only do they battle cancer on a daily basis, but they do it with a smile on thier faces, and with encouraging words for everyone they come across.
Relay for Life is my small way of helping fight the disease that we haven’t been able to stop yet.
Here’s to more birthdays!
Please join me in this new challenge, and help make YOUR small impact on cancer.
Do it for the ones you’ve lost, and the ones you can’t imagine losing. Do it to make a small, yet significant difference.
I’ll be on that track, walking for 24 hours. I have set a personal goal to raise $150. I wanted to raise more, but I got involved a little later than I meant to.
I will be walking April 21-22 in Oceanside at Mira Costa College.
If you are interested in making a donation, please go to my Relay for Life page, and you can donate online or print a donation form that you can mail to the American Cancer Society. You can go directly to RelayForLife.org and search Sondra Holtz, or click here.
Also, if you are a fan of SeeSondraSlim on facebook, you can click the link there as well!
If you’re interested in commemorating a loved one lost to cancer with a luminaria, you can use your donation to sponsor a luminaria in their memory as well. 🙂
Let’s kick cancer’s butt!
’til Next Time,
