Relay For Life continued

Wow, what an incredible night and an incredible amount of participation for the 1st St. John Relay For Life on Saturday. It was a night to celebrate, remember and fight back as 40 different teams of 15 members kept at least one member walking around the Winston Wells ball field throughout the night. Each team is responsible for fund raising prior to the event, while many teams continued gathering additional donations during the event and on the track selling food, drinks, shirts and even having a "dunk-tank." For the 1st ever Relay on St. John this event went very well and enough cannot be said for the organization behind getting this started.

Maho of course had a team in place, with staff taking turns walking 30 minute intervals starting at 4pm Saturday and going through the night and the next morning. In reality we had more than 1 staff member walking at most times, while others took turns manning the water and grill cheese stations we had going. Plenty of local bands kept us going, including the Ah We Band, Cool Sessions, Mark Wallace and The Ish. Pictures below and more info for this year and next year at
