This Saturday, July 18, Relay For Life of Norwin will be held at Norwin High School's Knights Stadium. Celeste Koutavas will be the host, once again, for an Amazing Grace team. There was no pre-registration for the team this year, so if you would like to attend and want to join the team, registration will begin at 9:00 am. A limited number of Relay t-shirts will be available at the time of registration. Anyone who is planning to attend the event and still has their Amazing Grace shirt from last year is welcome to wear it. The actual opening ceremonies will begin around 10:00 am, with the first lap starting time of 11:00 am.
If you would like to come and just enjoy the event without joining the team, please feel free to do so anytime during the day. There will be booths with activities, games and food available. There will be a Survivor lap and ceremony at 6:00 pm for anyone fighting cancer. The beautiful luminary ceremony will begin at 9:00 pm. Throughout the day, you can purchase luminary bags in memory or honor of a loved one.
We will be attending and selling Reflections Of Grace Foundation bracelets and pins to benefit Relay for the day. Although our main fundraising focus has certainly shifted from Relay to our Foundation, we are glad to come out and support this community event in honor of the many families in our area affected by cancer.
We celebrated on that Relay day in July 2007...Grace was fighting and surviving; we remember fondly that it was one of her most favorite days ever; now, we fight back, because what we loved so dearly has been taken from us....
"Trust in the Lord with all yor heart,
And do not lean on your own understanding..."
