This Friday, I will participate in the Relay for Life in my hometown of Smiths Falls.
I’ve participated in this event a few times. It’s always a good time, and lots of funds are raised for a cause that hits very close to home for me.
I’m just going to say it: I hate you Cancer.
You’ve taken my Mom.
But he’s too strong for that shit.
This year my Relay for Life team consists of all family members.
We’ve named our team Lefty’s Legacy – after my grandfather.
I’m pretty pumped for the event. I’m sure there will be lots of laughs, and many happy tears remembering those loved ones that were taken away from us much too soon.
I had great intentions to start fundraising about a month ago.. then THIS happened. You may recall the attack of my counter surfing dog.
As I type this, Jersey is laying at my feet so I know there are no muffins being demolished.
In an effort to raise funds, 36 of these babies were baked today. (Don’t mind my lack-of-backsplash. I still haven’t been able to decide on one!)
Many of my colleagues are watching their waistlines, so I kept it light by using this recipe for Honey Sweetened Low Fat Banana Muffins.
I might have had a taste test, and they are delicious and plenty moist. Not low fat tasting in the slightest!
Here’s hoping for a good donation day tomorrow! Wednesday is going to be “I hate Cancer cinnamon buns”. That should be a hit too. My colleagues like to eat! :)
Although I won’t be able to send you any muffins, if you’d like to sponsor me please click here. Every penny counts!
I hate you Cancer.
