Thx for posting Julie...now that we're back online @ home I can add my sincere hope that we can pull together and have some FUN this summer!

We have the Binghamton Bridge Pedal coming up soon...it's a relatively short ride (10 miles) under VERY safe conditions (police escort / supervision) and only $2-3!

And we don't have to stop there...! We are so BLESSED in our area to have such GORGEOUS outdoors to celebrate!

Everyone feel free to put ideas out there and let's see how we can SPARK! :-)

After speaking with Don, it appears that he and I are the only ones able to attend. At this point we are going to cancel the BAL relay for life SparkRally.

Hopefully we can plan something soon for everyone to get together! Have a great weekend!

I plan on being there for the whole event. Do people bring food/supplies? I've never done it before but I am looking forward to it.

I'll be there round the clock but anyone is SO welcome to spend as little or as much time as you can spare! The more the merrier! Together we can carry on the torch and make sure we keep someone walking through the 24 hours we are to be on the track! :-)

What time are people planning on being there and staying there until? I haven't done any fund raising and have very limited availability next weekend. I'd like to be there to support the team but probably wouldn't be able to make it.

I'm working on getting a sitter for my daughter so that I can do this. I'll try to recruit others too.

Hey, anything you can do or offer is MUCHLY appreciated!

Getting down to the wire folks...how about others...?

I know EZMERELDA is bringing her tent / canopy and am pretty sure TARA will be there. I plan to bring my Nordic Poles for some of my walking. Others are welcome to try 'em out...! :-)

Let's do our part to rev it up and raise some donations for a great cause!

Unfortunately, due to circumstances in my personal life, I will not be able to fully participate in this year's Relay for Life. I will continue to fund raise and I can contribute items to help those participating have a fabulous time, but I can not stay longer than an hour on the actual day due to newly established responsibilities. I'm very sad and sorry that I have to back out but I really don't have much of a choice at this point.

Okay folks...we're heading down to the last month before the Relay For Life!

Everyone sign up at the American Cancer Society link below! Put your thinking cap on for some great PIRATE gear for the "Pirates of the CURE-abbean" Theme for this year!

EZMERELDA ( www.sparkpeople.com/mypage.asp?id=EZ

Excellent Erin!

I've been focusing on fund-raisning for the Heart Walk next week for now...want to give folks a "breather" before I hold out my hand for the Cancer cause...lol!

Hope some other folks can jump on in and join the fun of the Relay For Life!!

Yep, I thought that was helpful...we'll pick a day and time as we get closer. GREAT to hear you and a friend can join the fun!

In the meantime, check out the Heart Walk coming up in April...! Look at our SparkRallies posted on our Team Page for more info.

Super! I doubt we'll have anything else that will work as nicely as yours did!

If anyone out there is planning to be there, be sure to sign up at the url I posted earlier...!

I have a 5 gallon water cooler I can fill and bring. Probably some other helpful stuff too, I'll have to think on it.

Wow, June is shaping up to be a VERY busy month for me (2 weddings), but I really want to do this. I'm hoping to motivate some others to join and walk with us, too.

Awesome!

I've registered and created a Team Page for the Relay For Life!

Anyone who wants to participate head over to the Team page and be prepared to pay $10 via credit card.

Here is the Team url:

main.acsevents.org/goto/sparkpeople

Here is my personal url:

main.acsevents.org/goto/ddoorn

Hoping this info will send you in the right direction for signing up. The website is not as user-friendly as I would have hoped...!

If there are any problems, post away and we'll work it out!

I can be there! It's Regents week, a super easy week at school, and I have no other obligations at this point. Last year was fun, but I wanted to be a more active participant, but couldn't. Hopefully I can be! Also, as you can see by my fitness minutes, I'm in even better shape to get more laps in! Maybe we can be #1 this year in laps! Don, if you want me to help be a co-leader/organizer, I am up for the challenge!

Like I said in the other one, I'm definitely interested in joining! This will give me a goal to look forward to, which will help motivate me! Also, are family members allowed to participate also? My boyfriend wants to walk with me, but he's not a member of SparkPeople.

Update and correction:

There are TWO different Relays occurring in Broome Co. 1) Western Broome is holding their Relay on May 22 and 23 at Sammon Field, Vestal, 2) The rest of Broome Co. is holding their Relay at MacArthur Park (same location as last year) on 6/18-19.

I was the Team Captain last year and am certainly open to passing that along or sharing that with others this year. I will be re-signing our SparkPeople Team up soon.

I think it would be best for us to stick with the later event at MacArthur Park as it will likely be WARMER then for our overnight hours during the Relay.

Last year's theme was the Hawaiian Luau and THIS year's theme will be the Pirates of the Carribean! Bring your walking shoes and favorite "decked-out" garb...! :-)

EZMERELDA has already agreed at our last SparkRally to provide her tent to be our home base of operations during the Relay.

I'm open to all ideas, feedback...hoping we can get a number of us joining in the effort! :-)
