This weekend, my sisters and I (along with loved ones) will be participating in the Hershey/Hummelstown Relay for Life. At least one member of our team will be on the tracking, walking laps, for 24 straight hours. (The other team members can rest or socialize.)
We’re doing this in honor of my younger sister who is a survivor and in memory of my mom who died of cancer last summer. So we are spending the day walking in circles to raise money to help those struggling with cancer and to help fund research to find better treatments and even a cure.
In an odd way, I’m looking forward to it. It’s two days with my sisters, out in the sunshine. We’ll have time to talk to each other and to meet new people. It will be time out of my usual routine to reflect and reset.
