On a less depressing topic than my last blog…here’s a crosspost (well, mostly) from the Dimond page:

Thanks to everybody who came by for this year’s Relay, it was a lot of fun :). There’s a couple of Relay-related videos in the works right now, but in the meantime here’s some frame shots…

The Boy Scouts led the Survivor Lap. Each person wearing a purple shirt is a survivor of cancer.

Our team sold lap trackers to help people count how far they walked during the Relay.

And every time you pass our booth you add a bead to it. The system is three purple beads then a black one. Each black bead signifies that you’ve gone a mile.

Luminaries: each luminary represents someone who’s had cancer (either in memory of someone who was lost or in honor of someone who’s survived it)…

Jessica ran 20 miles at the Relay to raise money. This is her completing the 20th mile…

Afterwards she decided to run 10 more. Because she’s hardcore like that.

Being a Miss Relay contestant is hard work. Sure you raise a lot of money for charity…
