I won’t utilize this space too often for personal things, but this is one I am passionate about and it gives our readers a chance to win some pretty cool things.
Let me give a bit of a back story, however.
On August 17, 2007, my father lost his battle with lung cancer. It was a painful time in my life and for those of you who have lost loved ones, I’m sure you can relate. Not a day goes by where I don’t miss him or think about him. It was the second time he battled cancer and he just didn’t have it in him to beat it a second time.
Since then, I’ve been highly involved in our local Relay for Life.
Each year we have a small team (usually fewer than 10 people) who do our best to raise money for the cause. We usually manage to have upward of $2,000 raised for our team, which is solid for a small group. Some bigger teams don’t get to that level.
I’d like to keep up that trend.
Besides hoping the disc golf community may be interested in helping, I also want to make sure I maximize the people having the chance to win these items. I’ve even thrown in a bit more — just for the Rattling Chains readers.
