Why we are participating in a Relay For Life event...
We participate because we know that by raising funds and walking in the American Cancer Society Relay For Life event, we will help save lives from cancer. We want to make noise and help finish the fight! It's overwhelming to think that millions of people will be diagnosed with cancer this year. It might be someone close to us or you or me.

Hello my name is Nicole Flowers and I joined the A|M Fitness Relay For Life team. This is my story about Cancer and how it affected my life and so many others around me.
I was at work one night and my best friend Cheryl had called me during the busy rush. Cheryl was sobbing uncontrollably, I could hardly hear her speak. After asking her to breathe and calm down I had asked her what was wrong. She replied, "Nicole, I have Cancer." The only thing that I could do was listen, keep control of my feelings, and reassure her everything was going to be fine. I hung up the phone and I lost it.

If I can do this you can do this. When I say this, I mean the fitness program here at A|M Fitness. I want to be able to share my experience so that it may inspire others to jump over that hurdle we call fear and dive into what we like to call, the transformation.
I remember attending my orientation and thinking, "what am I getting myself into?" Although I had my reservations about the program I knew that it was exactly what I needed to finally reach my fitness goals. I was nervous, I was scared, I was doubting myself. Could I really do this?
