Wings of Hope Week 4 Update  12/21/09 – 12/26/09

*Written by our Team Coach Chris Kidwell Prestano

Four weeks into our fundraising for Relay for Life and we are STILL number 1! To date, we have raised $1,868 for the American Cancer Society. I could not be prouder of our team. We would like to give a special thanks to the following people:

• Supporters Dr & Mrs. Barry Cohan, Jonathan Meads, Robert E Ballard Jr, Frances Mankiewicz, Marie Drohan and Darren Johnson.

• ThyCa

• The thylicious Katie Schwartz

We would also like to welcome our newest team members: Darren Johnson and Brian Ferrina. Darren has walked a very personal road with cancer as both his mother and grandmother are survivors. We are very proud to have this caretaker on our team.

Angel McMellin is working away at planning our bake sale. So if you know a location in the Baltimore, MD area where we can have this event, please let us know. We are also in the process of creating team signs for the Relay.

We need to start tracking down camping gear for April 16th – tents, chairs, sleeping bags, coolers, etc., so please start asking around to your friends and family if we can borrow these supplies for the event.

Please keep Darren Johnson in your prayers this week. He just lost a friend to cancer (the same day my two aunts died). He needs our support and comfort during these times. And please say a prayer for Marie Drohan. She just lost her grandmother to cancer.

We hope the holiday season is finding you safe and happy and wish all of you a wonderful New Year. And thank you again to all of our generous supporters and our energetic team members.

Until next week… Wings of Hope
