    My university held a cancer fundraiser this weekend, basically one member from each team of people walks around a track for 12 hours (well, they switch amongst the team). We raised upwards of $56,000, so it went pretty well. When people aren;t walking, they all hang out and there are lots of things set up for people to do. So yeah, I took my camera, and these are what I came up with.

    This first one was during the "survivors walk," people from the community who had beaten cancer came and did the first lap around the track.

    All around the arena were 'luminaries,' bags with candles in them, each one has someones name on it who has died from cancer.

    And this last one is just for fun, one of photog friends was there as well, and he had just bought a fisheye lens, so I got to borrow it for a few minutes, its was pretty wacky.
