We participated in the event with A.S.K.-Acts of Sincere Kindness (check the out HERE), a new local volunteer organization that participates in all kinds of community events. We were privileged to not only have our team A.S.K. in the relay, but we also sponsored a booth. Many of the sponsors and teams had areas set up to play games, give massages, provide refreshments or just to be supportive. We had a great time with our musical hula hoop game and the lighted lei's were a big hit!

|Walgreen's team played pick a duck for a buck - they had great prizes!!|
In the darkness of the evening, the luminaries were lit and the whole track was bathed in a glow of white and brown bags. A large ribbon and the word HOPE was illuminated in the bleachers providing an inspirational backdrop.
|The moment the bags were lit it became just a little more quiet around the track.|

Thanks to everyone who made this event possible from the organizers to the participants to those who raised monies and those who gave monies. Let's have the goal be: No white bags only brown!
-Love from our A.S.K. team-
