Relay For Life of Bridger Valley will be on Friday, July 12, starting at 6 p.m. and going through Saturday, July 13, at noon. This year we have some really fun events going on during Relay, including a dunk tank, face painting, balloon making, bouncy houses, train rides, lawn games, raffles and silent auctions. One of the team fundraisers is ‘cow poop bingo.’ This is exactly what it sounds like. The Cancer Crushers Relay Team is selling “bingo” squares for $10 each, hoping to be able to have two ‘game cards’ totaling 200 squares. This is a 50/50 bingo game, meaning if they sell all of their squares, the winner (the number the cow poops on) will receive $500. We also have chairs up for silent auction, quilts for raffles, and great entertainment with our DJ, Dan Waters, of L.L. Sound.

Every year we name a Grand Marshal, a person who has/had cancer and who has made a difference with Relay. This year we are very honored to have Linda Douthett as our 2013 Grand Marshal. She has courageously battled cancer and sadly, still is.

If there is anything about Relay For Life that I want people to know, it’s that what we do MATTERS! Regardless of what your feelings may be about Relay, please know, that without it and the American Cancer Society, more people would be dying from cancer than ever. Even if they had the cash, they couldn’t buy the cure. The research MATTERS. Without the research, all the money in the world couldn’t form the cure. I know we live in a world of quick fixes where the easy way can seem like the best way, but cancer doesn’t take the easy way, which means neither can we.
