Teams throughout the day will be selling things and offering games to raise team money and our concession stand will have food and beverages to take care of the hungry participants. During the day after the survivor celebration, the children will have face painting and fun activities to do. Stop by and get the clues at the entrance as to where our butterfly will be hiding many times during the day then return it for your picture and a brief story to become part of a mural on the international level. Pray for lovely warm weather and come out to show your support of the battle against cancer. We are slowly winning the fight! Hope to see you there.
