Relay For Life

Last Friday night and Saturday morning, the commotion at Edwards Stadium was caused by the Relay for Life fund raiser for the American Cancer Society.  This year, myself and a few friends decided to participate.  I didn’t really know what to expect out of an 18 hour long relay race, but it really wasn’t a race.  Sure there was a ton of walking, but there was also a variety of events like yoga and dance lessons, tug of war, and the tons of live entertainment.  It was a fun little event as a saw a bunch of old friends like Lauren and rwiggum and ran around  and played the games for most of the night.  Our team ending up raising about $560 dollars, which was a great amount of money and probably the highest amount money raised by a fraternity on this campus.  There were some crazy things happening this morning, including my friends taking me on to the track while was asleep.  I was also surprised as to how I managed to sleep from 3 AM to 9 AM this morning at the stadium.

Rather than say more, see what went on. Go to and click the Relay for Life Album.

Funny Moment-While trying to think of a fund raiser: Vicky: “Maybe you guys could do a car wash.  You could get some girl to go topless and that’ll attract people.”
*a bunch of us stare*
Vicky: “Don’t even think about it.”

  1. Relay For Life is really, really awesome. I did it two years ago in L.A., when it was held at one of the high schools in the Valley. Our team was North Hollywood Academic Decathlon and me and my friend stayed up for the whole 24 hours of the relay. So great. We were playing frisbee at 4:00 in the morning to prevent ourselves from falling asleep, and then I ran laps at 6:00 for the same reason.
    Ah, the memories.

    1. It is awesome

      Yeah we played football and stuff. I feel asleep actually, but the bros woke me up by taking me on to the track while I was in my sleeping bag. I should have invited you and more people I knew, probably would have been more fun. I’m looking forward to planning it out for next year.
