Isle Relay Members Attend Eastern Division Leadership Conference - November 2007

Conference courtyard

   High school physical education teacher and Relay For Life committee member Daneen Gallagher and SRP team member Colleen O'Donnell recently attended the Eastern Division Leadership Conference for Relay for Life. The weekend event was held in Albany, NY and consisted of the NY and NJ area Relays and numbered about 400 people. Friday evening consisted of a Survivor Ceremony, a Luminaria Ceremony, a game of Healthy Twister and a poster competition between the local Relays. The Western NY Zone was well represented with about 15 participants. The theme of the entire weekend was "Superheros." This year's Relay slogan is "Celebrate, Remember, Fight Back."
   The Mission of the American Cancer Society is always at the forefront of its gatherings and was emphasized at the conference; "The American Cancer Society is the nationwide community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service."
   The participants attended many different sessions on Saturday including Community Based Marketing, Planning for Growth, Fight Back through Mission, and Hope Starts Here. It was a wonderful weekend, full of information, dedicated and outgoing people, and ideas to make the Grand Island Relay for Life, being held on June 6th and 7th, the best GI Relay ever!

Lisa and Mike have two children, Kara, age 15 and Eric, age 10. Now breast cancer free, Lisa is a two-year survivor and is looking forward to being a big part of Grand Island's Relay For Life 2008. Mary Dunbar-Daluisio and Supervisor Peter McMahon are back as co-chairs for the Relay and everyone on the committee is looking forward to a successful year.
