York’s Relay for Life kicks off Friday afternoon (2pm) and runs through Saturday (2pm) at the York School of Technology (I-83 and Queen St). Once again the actionchurch tent will be right in the middle of the infield, and actionchurch folks will be EVERYWHERE serving at the event. Thanks to your generous donations, Friday night we will serve dinner at the Survivor Banquet to 550 cancer survivors/caretakers. actionchurch folks will also be running sound and lighting, a free shaved ice stand, and a free “bounce house” area for the kids at relay. We’ll have walkers from actionchurch on the track for all 24 hours of the event, so even if you haven’t signed up for anything specific, come on out and be part of the action.
Jerry and the Doozees play the main stage at 5pm Friday. If you’d like to come out and cheer on our house band…and maybe carry something heavy over to the stage :-) as they say in office space- “That would be great”!
If you signed up to be a server at the Survivor Banquet, please be at the “big white tent” by 6:45 (fri night) The Banquet runs from 7-8 and there will be a quick clean up afterward.
We’ll be “live tweeting” the event. So if you’d like live updates for your mobile phone or computer, you can follow actionchurch on twitter @ http://twitter.com/actionchurch (You might want to ignore the updates after about 3am. :-) ) You can also follow all updates right here on the blog.
Any other Questions? firstname.lastname@example.org (we’ll be monitoring the account during relay.)
I can’t stress enough how much I hope you come out and join us at Relay for Life this weekend. People often ask me “How can I get to know other people at actionchurch?” or “How can I be part of what actionchurch is doing to serve others in our community?” There is no greater opportunity for either, than to join us in our “reindeer games” at Relay. You will have a tremendous amount of fun, but more than that you will experience first hand what it means when we say that we “Love God, Love people, and Take action”!
