No Rules Raft Race 2012

Saturday was our 3rd annual Lending A Hand Raft Race!


It is always such a big job getting it all together (and Tiff does a LOT of the planning), but it is so worth it when we think that we are raising thousands of dollars for cancer patients in our community.

We’ve come a long way, BABY!  Love you, Tiff! Winking smile

Again this year, the Raft Race was a huge success.  We were very concerned through all of last week looking at the forecast, as it was getting chillier and rainier by the day.  But, by the time Saturday morning rolled in, we had a good mix of sunshine and clouds.  And it was a little chilly, but it just added an extra “element” for our rafters to battle through.  And battle they did! 

We have the most amazing support in our tiny little town.  We are never at a shortage of wonderful people who want to help in any way they can.  We had a great crowd and raised over $7,000!!  Do you know how many gas cards, prescription co-pays, nutritional supplements, etc. that will buy??  Let me tell you, it a lot.  And we LOVE being able to help in any way we can.

Here’s my good-looking, er, messy crew!  And in case you’re wondering what all the white stuff is…it’s flour.  I guess “No Rules” equals flour bombs. Winking smile  It’s all in good fun.2012-10-08 0011


Lots of fun was had, tons of money was raised, and at the end of the night, there were some wiped out Lending A Hand girls with big smiles on our faces.

See you next year!
