Relay for Life

Relay for Life 2013Relay for Life provides optimism
for difficult times through activism.
Changing the unbearable
into what is more endurable.

It brings light into the dark
to take away the question mark.
Giving plans to overcome the fear,
make burdens lighter, and provide good cheer.

Giving participants a chance to work as one;
helping one another until the disease is done.
Working together within a community
to find a cure and ease anxiety.

New medications give hope; a spouse adds love,
a family gives support, and there is help from above.
There are times when the battle is not won
But it still means a ton.

Because of the good things
like hope and unity which Relay brings.
Fighting against a malady
through this great charity.
