Ten Ways you can be a part of First Lutheran's Relay for Life team, May 2-3 at the Miami County Fairgrounds:

1. Donate money--Silver Plate offering, give to a member of the walking team, or go to www.relayforlife.org/MiamiCounty and select First Lutheran Church or one of our participants.

2. Join our Relay for Life planning team. Help us with ideas to raise money.

3. Donate craft items or baked goods that we can sell at our booth. Baked goods that we can put in sandwich bags would be best.

4. Donate an item for our raffle (handmade afghan, gift basked, etc.)

5. Donate an item to be put in the auction held during the relay.

6. Join our team of walkers. Adults and youth are welcome to participate. Sign up for your preferred time at the table in the lobby. Fill out and return a participant form. Or you can join on-line. Then ask relatives, friends neighbors, and co-workers for donations. Members are encouraged to raise $100 each.

7. Work at our booth at the relay. Two-hour shifts from 6pm Friday to 12 pm Saturday.

8. Purchase a luminary and/or a caregiver's heart. Forms are on the table in the lobby. Mail forms and donation to the address listed on the forms.

9. Come to the relay even if you don't sign up to be a walker or worker.

10. Pray for all who have or have had cancer. Pray for all doctors, nurses, caregivers who help people with cancer. Pray for those participating in the relay. Pray for good weather the weekend of the relay.
