Exclamation I need your help fellow Jeepers...

This year I'm participating in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life.

The relay starts on May 17 at 9:00am and goes for twenty-four hours. May 18 will be the second anniversary of my Fathers death. He died from complications of Pancreatic cancer. Cancer has touched every one of us in one way or another; this is your chance to help make a difference.

I've set my fund raising goal at $1,000. I believe that with your help, I can raise at least that much.

Please visit my personal fundraising page: Brian Baber: Fundraising

No donation is too small! Thanks in advance for your prayers and help with reaching my goal! //Brian.

cool, just as a fun fact, the Relay for life program is the biggest single fundraising event for a single cause in the world, it raised over a few million dollars last year i think.

Sorry i cant help you, but im doing it too so it all goes to the same place in the end

Time to dig deep people, I've found a benefactor who says he will match what I manage to collect if I exceed my goal of $1,000. I'd love to see him make a $2,500 donation and I believe I can raise that much with your help!

Think about it... Your $10 donation = $20 to American Cancer Society! (the link is in the first post)

It's one small way you can "Stick it to the man!"

Thanks, //Brian.

Hey gang, Relay is in five days and I'm still $275 short of my goal of raising $1,500 to fight cancer.

The weather man says it is going to hit 100 degrees this weekend and I'll be on the track from 12:00 noon to 2:00pm and then again from 12:00 midnight to 4:00am. I'd appriciate any prayers to help me get through this and to meet my fundraising goal, if any of you are so inclined.

Thanks so much to those of you that have supported me with prayers and donations so far. I couldn't have come this far without your support.

//Brian.

TT and I came out to cheer on Brian during the late night shift! He was running so fast that the camera couldn't catch him! But heres a pic of his Jeep.



It takes a very special individual to give so much time and put in the amount of effort that Brian did leading up to and during this event.
You rock Brian!
Your hard work and dedication is an inspiration to us all.






OK - OK enough of that... Do you have enough BenGay old man?!

Who you callin' "old"? (and yes, I'm hurtin' and still very tired this morning.)

Sorry I missed you and Tiny. What time did you come by? I saw your note in the morning and it made me feel good that you came by. Thanks for the support!

I'll write a post later today giving more details, but for now I'll just say it was a life changing event. Thanks to the support from people here at WF and a multitude of other people, I was the top fund-raiser with $1,690. My team was the top team with $5,686.50 (our group was split into 4 teams. Combined, we raised over $20,000!) The grand total for the event was $65,000 +!

I walked a total of 33 miles. 22 of those were between 9:00am and midnight on Saturday, and I did them in my flip-flops. My wife and three sons came out at various times to walk with me. I feel truly blessed to have such great friends and family.

Thanks to everyone!

//Brian.

Thanks tiny, I was going to ask you to un-stick it. And thanks again to the people that donated on my behalf. American Cancer Societey is a great organization.

I'll be doing it again next year, so start saving your pennys now so you can help me out!

//Brian.
