for the third year in a row, i had the honor of photographing the montgomery Relay for Life event. it was just as full of energy as last year only this year…no rain! yay! cancer has touched my life, along with so many other people’s lives in much more devastating ways. we just lost a dear family friend to cancer. he battled so hard for so long. enough is enough! that’s why i consider it an honor to be a part of events like this. each of us can only do so much but we are a part of a greater whole so, together, we can make a difference. the highschoolers at the montgomery event made a huge difference. it amazes me how socially aware kids are these days. it is so enlightening to see them giving so much of their time, energy and money to causes they feel passionate about. here are some numbers to give you an idea of the scope of the event i attended. they had 1,401 participants, 149 teams and raised $87, 875.00! you can read more about Relay for Life here. the next event i will be at is Ride Cincinnati. i will be taking fun photos for my sixth year and printing them for free of anyone who attends. it’s a wonderful event dedicated to the memory of a dear friend of mine. i hope to see you there. in the meantime, enjoy some images from Relay for Life 2012.
