Cancer Crusade 2009

Nancy, Amanda and I before the big day began

**Last year Amanda was battling cancer...this year she is a SURVIVOR!

A few weekends ago we held the 2nd annual Mt. Pleasant Cancer Crusade. It turned out to be a beautiful day...an answered prayer. We had 105 runners in the 5k race and a bunch of kids enjoyed the kid's fun ride. It was a ton of work and a huge success! I was proud to be a part of it. We surpassed last year's amount raised and our this year's number was $16,7000. WOW! That money will be split between St. Jude Children's Hospital and our local cancer center, the Patty & Bo Pilgrim Cancer Center.

And they're off.... Zachary loves riding in the fun ride.Trent rode his bicycle this year, tooChapel Hill Cheerleaders did the face paintingMPHS cheerleaders cheered our runners onCuddles the Clown made balloon animals...HUGE HIT!!! Lots of friends came out to support us.

Thank you to all the volunteers, donors and participants. Looking forward to next year!
