Relay For Life – American Cancer Society

01.20.2008 | 11:48 am | Uncategorized

For the past 2 years I have been involved at work with the ACS’s Relay For Life, which is a fund raising event. There are RFL events all over the country, and they hundreds of thousands of dollars for cancer research every year. It is my personal goal to raise over $1,000 towards this worthy cause. My deadline is April 1, 2008.

More:

Can you believe that more than 1.3 million new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed in the United States this year? Those are staggering statistics, but there is hope. Each of us can do something to save lives and help those already fighting this disease. That’s why I’ve decided to take action against cancer by supporting the American Cancer Society Relay For Life® event right here in my community.

Relay For Life is an overnight event that brings our community together to help support the American Cancer Society and its lifesaving mission to eliminate cancer as a major health problem. The Society works hard every day to prevent cancer and save lives by supporting groundbreaking research, affecting public policies that protect us from cancer, and educating people on how to prevent or detect cancer early. The Society helps people with cancer right here in our own community. And our efforts at Relay For Life can help the American Cancer Society keep working toward a cancer-free future.

I want to invite you to show your support in the ongoing fight against cancer by joining us for this year’s event. Please click on the link below for more information, including details on the inspirational Survivors’ Lap and the moving Luminaria Ceremony. We hope to see you there! If you can’t join us, will you please visit the site and make a donation to support our efforts? Either way, you will make a real difference in the lives of people facing cancer and in the lives of the people who love them. Thank you!

I am willing to send a Gremlin Bell to anyone making a donation of $20.00 or more. These are nice, brass bells that will help keep those nasty gremlins off your scoot.

Moved the Sirius antenna

01.19.2008 | 10:24 am | Goldwing

After riding the bike for a while, I discovered that when riding in a particular direction, the satellite radio would cut in and out. I am assuming that it is due to a line-of-site issue with the antenna location. So, I fabricated a bracket from some spare metal I had lying around the garage, and I screwed it into the top of the trunk lid behind the passenger seat. I painted it with some black spray paint and shaped it a bit to match the shape of the antenna. It now appears to work just fine. If I ever mount a luggage rack, it may interfere. I will have to cross that bridge when I come to it.
