Friday Night

This was the scene at the Opening Ceremony for this year’s Castlemaine Cancer Council Relay for Life.

Apologies for the darkness  and graininess of the footage but it was taken in full dark with just my little point-and-press cheapie camera

The current total *raised by our little team of disabled adults, their parents / Carers, and support staff is slightly over $500 [ $200 above our goal ]

Of that Nadie and I – with your help – raised $330.

So many thanks to everyone who has donated.

I’ll blog about the experience tomorrow as well as announcing the person who will be taking home the alpaca lace shawl.

You still have time to donate, and to be in the drawing for the shawl if you’d like to [ link in the alpaca shawl post above ]

* The 14 teams involved have , so far, raised $16,000+ dollars and the final total will be higher, as this only counts the monies actually banked before the Opening Ceremony.

    Well done to all of you. I support a son and his wife doing the relay and same son and another doing Movember. Unfortunately the funds only go so far… And my sister in whatever she does. She’s a breast cancer survivor since 1997 and does lot of fundraising in various ways.

    A great effort by everyone. Congratulations to you all.

    A great effort indeed! And I enjoyed the pipe band footage – those side drummers aren’t half bad!

  4. Relay for Life is an amazing thing … I participated in a local one the past 2 years … so inspirational.
