I Raced For The Cure

What a fantastic turn-out for the 2009 Koman Race for the Cure! 43,000 participants filled the streets of downtown Portland yesterday and it was incredible.

And, get this. While waiting for our walk time to start my daughter and I zipped and zagged through this sea of people to get some yogurt (Thank you Yoplait). Were almost at the booth when who do I see? One of my dearest friends! We found each other in this massive crowd! I kept thinking about her, hoping I would find her, and there she was. (Maybe next I'll concentrate on getting a million dollars ;-> )

I walked with my mother, my sister and my daughter. I walked in memory of, and in support of, many women. Let's take care of each other ladies! We are very important people.

  1. What a massive sea of pink. Congratulations on participating and walking in honor and memory of others. I'm sure that feels wonderful.

    And finding your friend in all those people? How awesome is that??!?!

  2. Awesome! Way to go!

    My daughter's sorority volunteers at the Race for the Cure in our nearby big city...they have so much fun and always come home emotional and touched.

  3. Wow, what a beautiful day too! Now my hanging out with the pirates helping to set a Guiness World record doesn't seem so special - but in a good way. ;-)

  7. Congratulations on walking for such a great cause! My family and I are waling in the Race for the Cure here in Tampa this Oct. 3rd. I cannot wait. We're called team :Kicking Out Cancer since we're such big soccer nuts. I'm still working on the look of my blog but you can see it here: http://kickingoutcancer.com
    In '06 and '07 I walked in the Breast Cancer 3 Day here in Tampa as well so my kids have been itching to walk in something with me. :)

  8. Congratulations! What an awesome accomplishment. I think Tara and I will be joining a group organized by the group that manages our apartment complex at the Phila Zoo next Sunday to walk for the Kidney Foundation.
