Saturday, October 17, 2015, my wonderful friends joined me for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
We Race Because…
- One in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
- Because every minute, somewhere in the world, someone dies from breast cancer.
- And because, breast cancer knows no boundaries- be it age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location.
- We continue to Race because at the current rate, 13 million breast cancer deaths around the world will occur in the next 25 years. (from centralwesternok.info-komen.org/)
Alison (left) and Margaret (right) are two of my biggest supporters and encouragers. They are my running and workout buddies, and I don’t know what I would do without them.
We finished our race, and started wandering through the vendor booths. I glanced up in front of us, and I see my best friend since the eighth grade walking toward me. What a splendid surprise! She and her handsome husband, Tim, stayed and watched the Survivor walk, and ceremony.
I didn’t get photos of everyone there. My biggest supporter, my husband, was there. Margaret’s man, Gene aka Big Daddy, was there too! I cannot put into words how special everyone made me feel!
I love all of you guys!!
