Relay for Life

I participated in Relay for Life, here in Brisbane over the weekend.
For those that don't know....Relay for Life is one of the Cancer Council's major fundraisers for the year. The idea is for people to sponsor us, then we walk for 18 hrs...from 3pm til 9am next morning. Yep, we walk right thru the night, with little sleep!
Our team went as Witches and Wizards for the second year running, but this year, we won the Costume prize! was worth sewing skirts the weekend before.
We all had fun dressing up, then trying to keep warm. It was terribly windy on Sat, but thankfully died down a bit by night fall...thankfully!
I was prepared for a blizzard, and had enough clothes to dress an eskimo...LOL
At least I wasn't cold!

Here's some pics...

And we'll be back next year to do it all again!

Chat soon,
