relay for life | cincinnati photographer

05.27.11

i’ve been so crazy busy with client posts that i’ve neglected this post which i’ve wanted to write.  i had the honor of photographing Relay For Life at Sycamore High School two weeks ago.  i feel so lucky to be able to use my photography to give to this organization.  i love knowing the images produced can become memories for those who participated in it as well as give the organization images to use however they see fit.  this is my second year participating in Relay for Life.  as I was told last year, “Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease.  at Relay, teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. because cancer never sleeps.  Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours in length”. WOW! you can find more info about the event and organization here.

i will soon be volunteering again, taking and printing photos of participants, at the Ride Cincinnati event Sunday, June 12th.  find out how you can be a part here. it’s a lot of fun for a great cause in memory of my close friend’s mother.  there are activities for kids, bike rides for all ages, food, entertainment and more.

on a more personal note, i am excited to report that our close friend who was battling cancer last year is in remission!  by you, me and everyone else participating in these events, giving our time and money, etc. we can, hopefully, beat cancer once and for all.

i took 100’s of images at the event of many people from many schools which I have posted on my Big Shots page on facebook. below are just some of the many i took…
