Finally! A sneak peak of my wonderful time as the official photographer for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. I had such a wonderful time last weekend at this awesome event. I had a hard time narrowing down, so here are a ton of pics!
I feel so lucky to have captured these sweet moments!
The first laps were done by those who personally have survived cancer. It was very humbling to see their strength and pure joy.
After the survivor’s lap, they were joined by their caregivers. Which was EVEN more humbling and touching. I couldn’t hold back the tears.
After a few laps, the fun began!
Apparently a tradition: Men dress up in dresses, carry purses around the track, and collect money. The one who collects the most wins! The man with the pink boa was a cancer survivor himself.
Once it got dark, a sweet and touching program was followed by the lighting of candles completely surrounding the track. The bags had names of family and friends who fought the fight with cancer.
Being able to attend this event was such an honor. And I can’t wait until next year! Over $55k was raised from this one Relay, and I can’t wait to see how the event grows next year. Thanks again for the great opportunity!
