This past weekend, despite the heat, we made our way to the track at Illinois Valley Central High School for this year’s Relay for Life of Chillicothe. We had quite the showing of Crew 91ers and played a supporting role in many different capacities.
We kicked off the morning helping to clean out the concession stand. There was a ridiculous amount of dust and the nacho cheese machine hadn’t been cleaned before the stand was closed for the season! Once the stand was cleaned we made our way to the football field to set up games for the kids.
Though there were not as many kids in the past that did not stop us from having a good time. We blew bubbles, jumped in the bouncy house, played with the water, attempted Hilly Billy Golf and had ourselves a grand old time.
Yes, yes, we were there to walk the track and we did that too we just enjoyed ourselves in all the different activities. Derick even participated in the 5K Glow Run and came in first place! After Relay we made our way to the Bannister’s lawn and camped out. Two individuals, who will remain nameless, stayed up through the night. The crazies!
We had another successful year raising $2,170.37 for Chillicothe’s Relay for Life! All in all, a wonderful way to spend a weekend!
