I think that it is safe to say that each and every one of us have been affected by cancer in one way or another. Whether we have battled it ourself, have stood by supporting a loved one battling this disease, or know of people in our community who are fighting this awful illness we are all affected. That is why I think the Relay for Life event is such an amazing one. Westfield’s Relay for Life takes place May 16th and 17th at the Westfield High School track and the WMS teachers have a team participating again this year. Their goal is to raise a whopping $10,000 and you can help!
Between now and the relay there are 3 fundraising opportunities that you won’t want to miss. The first one is “Chick-fil-A Spirit Week for Relay for Life. From Saturday, May 3 – 10, 2043 Chick-fil-A located at 14647 US 31 North will sponsor a fund-raiser for Relay for Life. Our WMS Relay Team will receive a portion of the sales during this week.
The second delicious fundraiser is at Mellow Mushroom Pizza – 2340 East 116th Street, Carmel, Indiana They will donate 10% of your bill (carryout or dinning in) to WMS Relay for Life Team on Tuesday, May 6, 2014 from 11:00am to 9:30pm. You just have to mention “WMS Relay for Life Team.
The last fundraising event is; when the sun goes down hundreds of Luminaria light the way under the stars to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remember our loved ones who have lost the battle, and honor those who have fought back against the disease and WON! The light ceremony symbolizes the hope and perseverance with which we all continue to fight. The Luminaria Ceremony will be on Friday, May 16, 2014 @ 10:00 p.m. The ceremony is an awesome event! If you would like to make a gift of $10.00 (cash or check – to the American Cancer Society) per Luminaria to keep the fire of hope burning with a Luminaria in memory of someone who lost the battle to cancer, in honor of someone still fighting, special recognition of someone who has beaten this disease, or in support of a caregiver. Please come by the WMS office to drop off your donation and pick up your Luminaria bag. You may decorate your bag or we will decorate it for you. You may also mail in your form and we will decorate the bag for you.
We hope you can join in on one of these fundraising opportunities! This is such a worthwhile cause that deserves all of our help! I hope to see you there!
