Namiss Indiana Queen at Relay for Life

Here is a great story that will pull at your heart strings. Sarah Knight, your National American Miss Indiana Jr. Pre-Teen Queen, formed a team to participate in the local Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society. Sarah and her entire family participated together. Sarah's mom shared with me the personal connection they have with the organization due the recent loss of a family member after a battle with cancer.
Sarah's mom says "we could not have been more proud as we watched her over the 24 hours of the event as she walked, played, and helped the organizers of the event in anyway she could. It was very emotional to watch her set up the luminaries for the ceremony as she would get tears in her eyes as she read the tributes on the bags that families had written to their lost loved ones. It was truly an amazing family experience and a great way to raise money for the American Cancer Society."

In Sarah's words, "I want to raise money for the Cancer Society so that another child may be spared the pain of losing a loved one like I did."

To Sarah and the Knight family, we are so proud of you for volunteering! Thank you so much for sharing - it's warms my heart to have such wonderful representatives for the National American Miss Pageant system. For anyone out there who isn't sure about us "Pageant People" :-)... eat your heart out! Thanks Sarah!
