An Event to Remember

I was privileged to participate in Kansas City's chapter of the Susan B Komen's Race for the Cure and it really rocked my socks off!

I'm a part of my company's community relations committee - and we try to participate in events to help others in the community throughout the year.

This morning, a group of us either Walked for the Cure or Slept in for the Cure - and what a worthwhile way to spend the morning.
About 28,500 turned out for the event - it was a wall of walkers and a sea of Pink as far as my eyes could see!



Folks came with crutches, they came in wheelchairs, they brought their babies in strollers and some even brought their dogs - but all of us knew this was a very good thing!

I loved taking pictures of some fun people -
and will leave you with a small glimpse of the things that made me happy!

















We made the finish line... and the sugar high wore off not long afterwards!
