Each $12 donation was given to the local Cancer Fundraiser and families and friends enjoyed pancakes, eggs, bacon or sausage, coffee or tea and of course one another’s company.

Love Your Feet? Choose Footwear Wisely for Relay For Life

Sandals, not the smart choice.

Sandals, not the smart choice.

Are you planning to participate in the 2015 Relay for Life? The first aid providers ask that you choose wisely when picking out your footwear the day.

Last year, the first aid station was busy with dirty, cut and bloodied feet, many with ripped toe nails. After the first 4 or 5 they figured out that each of the patients was either walking barefoot or wearing flip flops.

The thing about the walking track around the Orange Fairgrounds is that it is not paved, rather the surface is cut stone, not rounded tumbled stones, but sharp little rocks that act like shards of glass on bare feet.

Open sandals may be good for showing off a pedicure, but they are not good for walking several miles on a crushed stone surface.

The Relay Organizers’ main goal is to raise money to help fight cancer, but they also want all of the participants to have a safe and memorable time.

543938_112743655560495_1030105926_nFrom the BOW Relay For Life Committee:
We are almost there. Relay is just a few days away . We hope that everyone is ready and up for a great time while walking for the cause.
Let us remind everyone that we are asking that you each bring in three (3) canned items on the day of Relay. These cans will be used first to hold down the luminary bags, then after the event all the food will be donated to the food bank in the name of the Relay for Life participants. So we are solving two issues and helping as we do it.
On Saturday, set up will start at noon. Event continues through Sunday morning.
For the Amity students.  The tent site map will be at the security desk  if you still need to pick out your site. We ask that please check at the security desk between 7 and 7:30 a.m. or outside the café during lunch
Visit the BOW Relay For Life site HERE to donate to a team or to become involved.
From the ACS: What is Relay?
Organized, overnight community fundraising walk.
Teams of people camp out around the walking track at the Orange Fairgrounds, 525 Orange Center Road.
Members of each team take turns walking around the track
Food, games and activities provide entertainment and build camaraderie
Family-friendly environment for the entire community (No Pets Allowed)

Because it’s a team event, individual participants are not required to be there the entire time. But it’s so much fun, you’ll find it hard to leave!
