I've been captain of the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life team in Vacaville for the past 12 years.

The American Cancer Society Relay for Life is a 24 hour team event that raises awareness of cancer in the community and raises funds to fight cancer.  Throughout Relay for Life, teams of friends, families and co-workers commit to keeping at least one member walking the track…because cancer never sleeps.

This year’s event occurs from 9am Saturday, June 20 to 9am Sunday, June 21, at Vacaville High School’s Track.  
Be a part of the fight with cancer... JOIN my team or DONATE to the cause:

Every year I usually have a hairdresser come and donate her time and skills to cut hair for Locks of Love and Pantene Beautiful Lengths.
I have personally donated my hair 7 times to Locks of Love.
I get a haircut every 2 years for a good cause.  This year, I'll just be collecting hair to mail to these causes.

My friend, Sandy Owens, got me started with Relay for Life in memory of her sisters who battled breast cancer.
