OSU Relay for Life

The Talx Corporation (in Hilliard) is supporting/participating in the OSU Relay for Life (to benefit the American Cancer Society) May 17th and 18th . . . a friend (Becky Hollen) has purchased a luminary for Ryan to put on the path and she’ll be walking in the event as well.

If any of you are interested in participating in this event – there are a number of ways to do so. One easy and tasty way is to chow-down at Skyline Chili (Mill Run) 3693 Fishinger Road on Tuesday, May 6, 2008 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm. Simply mention the OSU Relay for Life fundraiser in the Dining Room or at the Drive-Thru and a portion of your sale will be donated to benefit the OSU Relay for Life! Another way to get involved is by either sponsoring Becky as a walker or you can sign-up to join her team (they’re still in need of walkers). The event is a full 24 hours – with walkers walking in ½ hour time increments.

For those not familiar with what happens on the walk, our team must have at least one team member walking the luminary-lined path for an entire 24 hour period. Each member of the TALX WALX team will be walking. But, there's a lot of time to cover.We're asking for volunteers to come out and help us walk. The time slots are divided into 1/2 hour increments. You can sign-up for just 1/2 hour, a full hour or even more if you like! Lots of activities are going on throughout the walk (yes, even in the middle of the night). There's usually always a band on stage playing music, they've also done karaoke, there are lots of games/activities and they even have "Movie Time".You can send an e-mail with your preferred time to lgaskell@talx.com -- tell her that you got the info from me (Becky Hollen). I will be there most of the day Saturday, but I cannot walk on Sunday.No limit on the total number of walkers -- the more the merrier! Thanks again everyone for your support.
