Words cannot even begin to explain my emotions right now. Relay for Life 2013 is now over and my time as Logistics Director has come to a close. I donated 18 inches of my hair to an amazing organization called Pantene Beautiful Lengths (This organization gives cancer patients wigs free of cost). And $89,092 has been raised for the American Cancer Society. After sleepless nights and countless amount of hours creating schedules, info sheets for our teams, and the layout of the event, it is now over. I am extremely happy with this years outcome and cannot wait till Relay 2014….In Relay Spirit, Luly Sanchez #fiurelayLuly Sanchez
