Relay 2014 was Awesome

I want to say a big Thank You to everyone who supported me through my fundraising journey for this year's Relay for Life. Last year, I started Nina's Share-A-Bear by raising $285 at the 2013 Relay for Life. What a difference a year makes. 

I am pleased to announce that I exceeded my goal of $1,500. I raised $1,865. The best part of this was the happiness that I saw in the eyes of the "Survivor Kids" when they picked out one of my bears and gave it a big hug. This was their night and I was able to help them forget about cancer, medication and doctors for a few minutes.

Athens Bound with Emerson

2:30 PM - Let's get this party started.  What an awesome team... GO DAWGS!!!!!!!!!!  Can't go wrong with Dawgs against Dawgs...

Getting closer to game time:  Emerson and Athens have visited the gift shop and have had their pictures made in front of Sanford Stadium.  It will be time to go between "The Hedges" before long.  Look who we found; the legendary Vince Dooley himself.

April 12th...9:30 AM -- Up bright and early to get ready for the game.  Emerson insists on sharing her breakfast with me.  I have to keep up my energy to get lots of pictures made with the UGA cheerleaders and football players.


Whew, we made it to Athens, safe and sound.  In case you are wondering, my name is Athens.  Here I am with Emerson in the condo.  We are getting ready to call it a night, so we will be ready for tomorrow.


My journey began at 11:15 AM on Friday, April 11th.  I was selected from all of Nina's awesome UGA bears to travel to Athens to attend the 2014 Georgia Bulldogs G-Day Spring football game with my new best friend Emerson.

Emerson and I will be posting pictures this weekend.

You can also purchase one of my awesome UGA bear friends from Nina's ETSY store

I am donating $15 for all bears purchased before April 26th to Relay for Life on behalf of our Friends Against Cancer team.  I will also make and donate a 2nd bear to a hospitalized child.

Yes, I also have Gators, Elephants, Yellow Jackets, Razorbacks and more

I received my Prudential Spirit of Community Bronze Medal today

Other than having to wear my Chapel Outfit on a Tuesday, it was a pretty cool experience.  I did a quick uniform change before I let mom take pictures with my medal.

Nina's Share-A-Bear travels International

My first bears to travel international made it to Nicaragua with Molly this week. The smiles on her niece's faces says it all.. "Everyone should have a Share-A-Bear by Nina"...well maybe I am doing a little interpretation on my own.

The smile's is what this is all about. The best part of all is that three hospitalized children are also receiving a Share-A-Bear by Nina.
