Sandy Vesledahl and Kathy Jasnoch met me at my morning GBM office early one morning last week to tell me about the American Cancer Society Relay for Life pancake breakfast fundraiser they’re hosting on Sunday morning, March 14, at the Eagles Club. (The actual relay, 2010 Relay For Life of Rice County, will be held on August 6, 2010 at the Rice County Fairgrounds.)
They each have their own Relay for Life web page with their personal fundraising goals where they explain their personal reasons for why they Relay:
On the Kathleen Jasnoch Relay for Life page, Kathy writes:
I relay because I have lost too many people to cancer and I want to eliminate this battle for future generations.
My husband Jeff Jasnoch, my dad Don Kuchinka, grandparents and dear friends and relatives whose lives were lost to this disease, I relay for all of them.
I honor my loved ones and fights this battle in their memory, as well as for all who struggle with cancer now.
Please help us to eliminate this disease.
Thank you for your support.

I Relay because I want to eliminate cancer during my lifetime. Relay gives me the unique opportunity to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and support the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving mission by fighting back against a disease that has already taken too much.
