Thanks to the community of Lodi for coming together and making the 2012 Relay For Life of Lodi a smashing success. I am, and have always been, a proud citizen of Lodi, and your participation and generosity at this year's event is an example of what makes Lodi a great community.
An event of this magnitude would not be possible without the tireless efforts of many people. Thanks to the 2012 Relay For Life Committee members. You have given up many long nights and weekends to plan our Relay, and I owe you a debt of gratitude that words cannot fully express. Thanks to our team captains and their members, who planned fundraisers and attended meetings throughout the year. Thanks to our participants for coming out and supporting our event. Thanks to our sponsors for their generosity. And finally, thanks to our survivors and caregivers. You have fought against cancer with great courage and I applaud your strength. You are the heart of our Relay.
Because of all these people, Lodi raised over $110,000 and registered more than 300 cancer survivors at this year's event. Another example of "Livable, Lovable Lodi"! Thanks to all.
