Race for the Cure.

Race for the Cure.
Mother’s day 2007 started off very early so I would get to the MOA in time for the 5 K run. We had decided to meet at the BCAA booth where Julie was already giving out information on our “Breast Party in Town” and 6th annual Educational Conference.
We had Carrie, Jacqui, Ann, myself and 2 fans, running besides all the thousands of others dressing in various shades of pink, supporting this great cause.
Because there were so many runners we never really got any speed going but that was not the purpose this early nippy Sunday morning.
After the run we joined up at the booth again to get ready for the walk. The BCAA group consisted had more than 15 registered walkers and armed with signs we were ready to go. On our way to the starting line Polly spotted the Fox News camera and made sure she was interviewed about our reasons to walk. Our name was called by when we passed the starting line and off we went.
It so great to see some many people wearing pink, supporting the Race for the Cure. Survivors, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, parents and children and friends supporting friends. The ones that made it through the fight years ago and the bald heads from those fighting right now. We are all survivors in one way or another.
Seeing all these people in this sea of pink gives me a lot of hope for the future and one day that we don’t have to come out and “Walk for the Cure”.
But for now was stick with our slogan: Today we walk in October we talk!
