Our community has been working hard to find a meaningful and lasting tribute to a friend, colleague and neighbor. All of this energy has resulted in the formation of the Springfield-Burke Relay for Life Commmittee. This group of dedicated friends have been busy working with the American Cancer Society to make the first Springfield-Burke Relay a reality. The Relay is scheduled for May 14-15, 2010 at the West Springfield High School.
The Springfield-Burke Relay For Life Committee recently announced their first event – The First Annual Beth Bryan Swim-A-Thon – at Orange Hunt Pool from 9-11 PM on Sunday, September 6th. (register by August 28, 2009 by emailing the committee at SpringfieldBurkeRFL@gmail.com).
The Swim-A-Thon will give all of the kids and families touched by Beth an opportunity to work together in her name for a good cause, enjoy the pool for the last time before school starts, and have a bunch of fun doing it! We will have music, refreshments and games. The Swim-A-Thon will also launch our 2010 efforts in style – and in a way Beth would have appreciated – in the pool!
The pledge form is above and participants are asked to find sponsors for the event and set an individual goal of $25-50 each. If we all participate, we can make this inaugural event a huge success, and all the donations are tax deductible. Checks should be made payable to the American Cancer Society. We want a great turn out, so if you know someone who might like to help out, please feel free to forward this pledge form for them so they can join us for the Swim-A-Thon as well!
