Race for the Cure!
Saturday was the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. I will admit that the last time I did it was in 2004 which is the year my mommy became an angel. I should do it WAY more often because it is for a great cause!
This year I walked with my BFF Michele, Miss Melina, Mrs. Vanessa Skrabanek, Tina Cesta, Cassie and Sofia. :) When I did it 6 years ago, it was well attended but not crazy. Well in 2010, it was NUTS! There was wall-to-wall people in the streets of downtown. LOOK!
But the fact that ALL of these people were there for the same reason is pretty freaking awesome. Did you know that every 13 minutes, a woman dies of breast cancer? That is HORRIBLE!! We need to continue the fight to cure this horrible disease!!
Ok sorry for that depressing moment but the facts are the facts and I thought I would share.
Did I mention Sofia went too? This was her first walk and she did great. Even though she didn't really walk, she just rode around in her stroller. :) But she still did fantastic! She didn't even make a sound. She's such a good baby. And look how cute she looked! A girl has to have her shades! :)
Here I am with Michele....not the best picture of me, but it was freaking EARLY OK!?!?!
Next year I am going to do my best to start a team and have LOTS of people walk in my mommy's honor. Maybe you will join me!!!
