Relay for Life

So Josie mentioned putting together a team for this year's Relay for Life. I chatted with her and I totally agree. I hope you all know what the Relay for Life is, but just in case, it is a way to raise money for cancer research. It is a great foundation. In Colville my Uncle David and Tanner Pehl were the DJ's for the relay for that area.

As you know our Uncle DeLoy is fighting cancer right now and is in the end stages. We would like to do this in the name of him and all the others in our family who have fought the disease, Grandma Elder, Aunt Denise Poulsen, Tucker Ricker and DeLoy Elder. We would like to make T-shirts for our team and make it a special family event. We want to include everyone!!!

The date is JULY 9-10. We dont' have to walk all night, but that really is the fun of it. The entry fee is $100 per team, but if we get enough people together it won't be much at all, maybe $10-$15 per family.

I realize some of you don't live in Utah anymore, we are hoping and praying if you know of this far enough in advance you could make arrangements to attend. To be honest I am getting emotional just thinking about it.

So I want to hear from you all. We needs ideas for a team name and what our T-shirts should look like. I would also like to make sure Grandma and Grandpa Elder are there for at least some of it, kind of like an Elder Family Reunion????

Send myself or Josie ideas or suggestions. Love you all :)

I'm sure Jordan could dream up something awesome for the t-shirts. I wish I could come!
