227|365 relay for life necklace

This necklace represents the 23 miles Alex walked in the past 24 hours during the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.  This is Team Awesome’s third year and has now become a tradition for these awesome teens. This is the second year Alex has contributed the beads as a fundraiser. She starts the necklaces (glow in the dark string, a starter bead and a clasp) and they sell the set for $2.00 to all of the other walkers. The walkers stop for a colored bead after each lap, and a silver bead for each mile. By the end of the event, almost every walker has a necklace. Of course, the younger the walkers, the more beads they have to show!
