Shopping for Summer Dresses?

Hey everyone,

Summertime is officially here! For me, that means it’s time to break out the summer dresses! I’ve been on the hunt for some new ones that are affordable and super cute, and I have recently come up with a slew of online shops that are summer dress gold minds to share with you guys! Happy shopping!

Relay for Life

According to RelayforLife.org, “In May 1985, Dr. Gordy Klatt walked and ran for 24 hours around a track in Tacoma, Washington, ultimately raising $27,000 to help the American Cancer Society fight the nation’s biggest health concern – cancer. A year later, 340 supporters joined the overnight event. Since those first steps, the Relay For Life movement has grown into a worldwide phenomenon, raising more than $4 billion to fight cancer” (RelayforLife.org).

Relay for Life is an over night, community fundraising walk, taking taking place on a track. Fundraising teams are made, and they camp out around the track, with members on the team taking turns walking throughout the night. Activities, entertainment, and games make Relay for Life events fun and exciting!

It’s that ‘Relay’ time of year again! Are you part of a community that puts on a Relay for Life event? If so, what are you waiting for? Get a team together and start fundraising! All money raised goes  to benefit the American Cancer Society and supports the fight against Cancer.

I am very excited to participate in a Relay for Life event this Friday at Bridgewater State University. As a college community, (as of today) BSU has raised over $43,000 to support the American Cancer Society via a Relay for Life event!!! (Go Bears!)

Relay for Life ‘s theme color is purple; the purple ribbon is the universal sign designated to represent all Cancers. Add a couple purple accents and accessories to your wardrobe to help “paint your community purple”, and spread awareness about Relay for Life!

I ‘Relay’ for SarahBoczanowski and Cathy Brossi, two very important people to me, whose lives have been effected by Cancer. With individuals coming together, small communities will be able to make a huge impact on those suffering from Cancer, by spreading hope, awareness, and support to loved ones who need it, and honor to all survivors.

Why do you ‘Relay’?
