The American Cancer Society sponsors Relay for Life events in towns throughout the country. It is an opportunity to bring people together to celebrate survivors and those fighting cancer. Our friends the Jamiesons decided to get involved and start Relay for Life in Riverton. It the first year. Their little boy, Jake, was diagnosed with leukemia last year. They have been such great examples to us. It has been a tough battle but Jake is doing so well.
The event is held throughout the night - August 7-8th at Riverton High School. Please check out our team page. The money raised helps the American Cancer Society.

**Another event coming up on October 2nd is Light The Night. This event takes place at Sugar House park. It is specifically for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. It is a 2 mile walk celebrating those fighting blood cancers and honoring those who have died. The money goes to great research helping people like Kenyon. The LLS has been very good to us and we are so greatful for all they do. Feel free to join us that night as well. I will get a team together for that event as well.
