On Sept. 26th we did our annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. This year my boss joined us. He was a little leary because he thought that it would be only women. But he got quite the surprise when he saw so many men & they were dressed up too!

this guy is awesome in his tight pink tank!

My boss's wife just beat breast cancer & my friend passed away from it last year, so I really think it's important to do whatever I can. Paying the $30.00 fee & walking a 5k early in the morning is really a small price to pay.

the crew

Posted along the route is pictures of lost loved ones.

Anyone who has or had breast cancer (yes, men included) wears a pink t-shirt. Very inspiring to see so many people tackling this battle.

I wanted to share the event with everyone & encourage you to click their website

This is wonderful! Having a great time while doing it for a cause. I'm planning to join a 10k fun run on November, also for a cause: "Save Rice, Save Lives".

Thank you for sharing this post.

Very impressive march! The doggie in the pink shirt provides the comic relief within all this gathering engaged in the efforts to help the battle against a terrible disease.
