This month, I had the incredible honor of delivering the keynote speeches at two Relay for Life events. I’m new to Relay and, honestly, I was blown away. I was blown away by the commitment and passion, and by the awe-inspiring expressions of love.

Your comments have me tearful and hopeful. Thanks for carrying on in such a grand way in honor of your Dad and the others in your remarkable family!

Good for you Hannah! I was involved as a Media Sponsor for TV and Radio with ACS Relay for Life for many years in another state.
Served as MC, handled live talent and station vehicle appearances and participation, PSA’s etc.
It’s an amazing event. Almost had an opportunity to be more closely involved with it here in San Diego County… long story but things didn’t pan out.
Perhaps in the future I’ll get involved again. Right on my friend!
