The Passionate Redheads Relay for Life

New Year

The Passionate Redheads may be resting for now, but we're already thinking about the next Relay.  Last year it seemed that the "big guys" took over a lot of the heavy fundraising, making it hard for us "little flowers" to compete.  I don't see that changing, since the Christmas Relay thing that just ended. 

We already devote nearly half the year to fundraising, and I would rather have a fresh and vibrant team effort than to burn out before the season even begins.  We did not participate in off season fundraising as a team for this very reason. 

I have repeatedly argued with committee members that RFL should take place during winter months, when we're all sitting home on our computers in the evenings.  I personally have missed way too many spring and summer evenings with my family because I was raising money for the American Cancer Society.  This is not the kind of example I want to set for my (grown) children.  ACS has a huge budget, and they don't need my family time sacrificed.  Those summer evenings will never come again.


  1. So are the Redheads going passionate about a new year's party?

  2. Durff, you little party animal! Meeting soon to get the team primed for spring kickoff!

  3. We will be as passionate as ever! GO REDHEADS!
