Unfortunately since I have moved to Lawrence I haven't been able to find a Relay for Life team. I even took the time to talk to one that was outside my store and they didn't give me any information that I could have worked off of.
And so for basically three years I have been sitting on my thumbs and not participating. Anyway this year I now have a husband and was given plenty of time to know about it in advance so I convinced my great significant other to come join me on this walk. Fortunately for me he agreed.
Unlike my previous walks this one is still working on becoming a big event for the city. As a result it was much smaller than I was expecting yet in sense better organized since it was smaller.
Furthermore the time and date for the event being in the summer makes it so much more uncomfortable than the Spring-ish date that the one in VA had.
All things aside, though, it was fun to take my husband and explained things to him for the time that we were there. And even though it wasn't friendly to non-team members it was still a good experience for an individual who has had family and friends that have fought this disease.
