Susan Komen Race For The Cure

Last Saturday I was privileged to participate in the Susan Komen Race For The Cure in Little Rock with my sister-in-law Gloria.  Gloria is a 30 year survivor of breast cancer.  This race is HUGE in Little Rock.  It's a 5K that takes a couple of hours due to the crowd of thousands of women and children that take part.  The following is a very small sampling of the pictures I took. There was every kind of pink costume imaginable, music on every corner, men honoring the women as we passed, and best of all.........so many smiles and happiness everywhere!  My husband said it was very emotional for him to watch as women crossed the finish line because they were all extremely happy, smiling, waving, and the positive energy flow was staggering!

Last year my sister and I did the Susan Komen 3-day walk (60 miles!). Our experience was like yours--totally unbelievable. I am an eight year breast cancer survivor and my mother died of breast cancer. Please, everyone reading--make a commitment for next year. Together we can make a difference and you will have a blast!

Bless your heart, Dulcy!! That is incredible that 50,ooo people came to walk!! It had to be very rewarding!!! Did you forget to post your picture??

Did you know when you're posting photos, that if you click on "add another image" you can post up to 5 pictures at a time and go back and do it again if you have more? That way you don't have to do individual posts!! Hope you don't mind the suggestion! Believe me, I was blogging a long time before I found out!!!!

One of the two of my best friends died of breast cancer. It is tragic. I'm thankful for the many that have survived.

I did this same race probably 10 years ago in Little Rock. It was an awesome memorable experience.
