Last Friday evening, Brett and I joined thousands of others at the Valdosta Middle School track for Relay for Life. I always enjoy going there, even if just for an hour or two, and joining in the celebration over the fight for cancer. What I love most is that everyone seems so passionate about this cause, and the money raised goes straight to research.
Each year, there is a different theme. Last year's theme was "Games", and this year's theme was "Holidays". I loved walking around to see what each organization came up with and how they decorated.

Here are the ladies of the Valdosta Junior Women's Club, with a Mardi Gras display. I loved that there was a little boy dressed up like a court jester!
I didn't catch the name of this organization, but I loved their interpretation of the Chinese New Year
Lastly, you gotta love the play on words here... Get Crackin' for a Cure! :)
We stayed just long enough to watch the Survivor's Lap, where all of the cancer survivors in Valdosta were invited to walk a lap around the track with their families. It was very emotional.
