Why Relay for Life?
When I first became involved with Relay for Life at Shepherd University, I was motovated to participate in honor of family and friends who had cancer. After my father lost his battle with lung cancer I walked with a very heavy heart in memory of him. Then when my daughter, Heather became a nurse and started working in oncology, I found another reason to walk. Hearing what her days are like and seeing how much she cares about each of her patients. I started to walk in support of her and all of the doctors and nurses who devote their lives to ending this desease. Now, I walk for all of these reasons, but today I'm adding one more.
Today I am also walking for our Shepherd Students. I hear them talking about what Relay means to them. I know for many it is a very personal journey. For others, it's about being part of something bigger than themselves, a way to giveback. For some it's as basic as saving lives.
This year I relay in Honor, in Memory, in Support, and for our students! Students who put their hearts and souls into the Relay for Life event at Shepherd University.
