I collected plastic bottle caps though my collecting is not a hobby I do not enjoy stowing away hundreds of caps in my closet no offense to any plastic cap enthusiastic I collect caps for cancer In the beginning of my junior year our school started a fundraiser to help local kids pay for chemo treatments So every time my cross country team goes to a meet I carry around an old cardboard box with a neon poster on the box that says Caps 4 Cancer This way after the runners at the meet can throw their trash away and it goes to a good cause My dedications to the fight against cancer lead me to start my own Relay for life team Relay for Life is an annual fundraising drive for the American Cancer Society I encouraged twenty five of my classmates to join me in raising money for this worthy cause We went door to door held bake sales sold candy bars and even sold waffles at midnight to raise enough money to qualify as a silver team our first year Another thing I am dedicated to is my cross country team Last year at the cross country banquet I was given a baby pacifier from the senior captains This pacifier stands for the team captain who is going to lead and care for the team Leadership is something that you have to learn through actions it is not something that you can be taught through words For the past four years I have woken up every day at five thirty to run with twenty other girls These twenty other girls expect me not only show up to practice every day but also to reach high goals in other aspects of my life Part of being a team captain is to encourage our performance celebrate our victories and console the team after a defeat
