Bowdoin College; Brunswick ME

Area teams spent the night at Whittier Field,
with at least one team member
walking/running the track at all times. The teams
had recruited sponsors
to raise money for the American Cancer Society. You would
hard pressed to find a more dedicated, enthusiastic bunch than these folks!
In addition to the teams, another way ACS
generates donations is through the sale of
"luminaria". These are
paper bags containing sand and a candle.
For a $10 donation
you get a luminary
that most dedicate in memory of someone who has died of
cancer or in honor of
someone who has survived cancer. These line the track and
are lit at a 10:00 pm
I bought a few in Sandy's memory.
Sorry, the auto-focus doesn't work well in low light.
This year's Relay was the biggest ever for
Brunswick, raising a total of over $150,000!
