Will You Make A Difference In The Relay For Life Event ~

Relay For Life is a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society that celebrates life by honoring those that have survived cancer and by remembering those that have passed, all while motivating the community to fight back!!! The funds raised support research as well as several patient services.

"The people make the teams, the teams make the event, the event changes everyone"

There are a total of 18 teams, each with a captain and team members currently in Lompoc that are organizing this Relay For Life Event which is scheduled to be held May 15th and 16th inside Lompoc High School's Huyck Stadium. The event will be a 24 hour walk-a-thon fundraiser.

You can view all teams and there captains here: http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR/RelayForLife/RFLFY10CA?pg=teamlist&fr_id=20445

I was fortunate enough to be contacted by one of the teams directly, Dr. T's Family Chiropractic to participate in this event.

"Dr. T’s Family Chiropractic organized his team for several reasons. The most important reason is we wanted to provide an avenue to recognize and remember our loved ones who have had to battle this terrible disease. We are using the umbrella of our business to attempt to bring Family Chiropractic into the community as a place that truly cares about our friends and our family. During this process we want to encourage as many people to participate as possible so that we can spread the word that this disease needs attention and support so that one day our current and future friends and family are not affected like those that have already paid the ultimate price………AND it is for them that WE will continue to support the Relay for Life."

Dave Baker, (captain) Dr. T's Family Chiropractic

Dr. T's Family Chiropractic Goals:

Number one goal of this team is to work together in support of cancer awareness through discussion about the program with others and asking their assistance if possible. Number two goal is to participate in fundraisers that have been established to raise money for this event. Number three goal is to have as much representation at the Relay for Life Walk on May 15-16 as possible. Number four goal is to try to raise more money than we did last year ($15,000) as a team through personal and team fundraising efforts.

In addition to these goals I want to try to make sure that through all of this hard work and dedication that this team will provide and accomplish these goals having as much fun as possible NEVER forgetting why we are here.
