A Good Cause...

Last year I had a good scare after a mammogram and had several months of tests and finally a biopsy to determine if I had breast cancer. My BFF also had a similar scare. It was a good eye opener and I am much more aware now. Since last year's RACE FOR THE CURE Kami and I had said we were going to do it this year.

A month or so ago- we got a reminder when my sis-in-law asked us if we wanted to walk with her in celebration of her good friend Cindy who has survived breast cancer a couple times and is currently undergoing Chemo AGAIN!!! Immediately, my goal to walk was reinforced. SIGN ME UP!

So, yesterday was the big day. Kami was up early and raring to go. We hauled our backsides downtown to join the crowds. Over 30,000 people- pretty impressive. Thanks to Kami we got lots of freebies (she's good at finding good "stuff"). We walked and walked and walked. Cindy was there with her whole family and lots of friends. There was no complaining. NONE. We took pictures of her with her friends and family but they are on Kami's camera- BUMMER!

Feels good to be a part of a good cause and to help find a cure.

We had a good time and saw some pretty funny things. It was funny how creative people got.
These girls were so cute!
And talk about a cheerleader!!! This guy was on the side of the road cheering us on and making us laugh!
