Race for the Cure

Tuesday, October 9, 2012

This past Sunday, I got the opportunity to attend the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. This race is a walk/run held in Denver to fundraise for breast cancer funds. There were thousands of people there and it was an awesome way to spend my Sunday. I attended Race for the Cure with my sorority. We met up in Denver bright and early and walked the 5K to support those who have survived and those who have passed from breast cancer. There were people everywhere and it was so great to see how many people support this cause. 

We got into Denver around 7 AM and I'll just say that it was a bit cold. When we got there it was about 30 degrees but it luckily got warmer as the morning went on. We walked the 5K with thousands of people and then volunteered for the survivors ceremony. The survivors ceremony was my favorite part of the whole day because it was so great to see all of the women who have survived breast cancer walking around and being celebrated. We listened to inspirational speakers about their stories of their experience with the disease. The ceremony ended with a sneaker salute to all of the survivors. That moment was so amazing to see everybody showing their full support for the survivors. It really got you thinking about how precious life is and how we all need to live life to the fullest every day. This day was so amazing and I'm so glad that I went. They hold this race every year around the same time, so if you ever get the chance to sign up, I definitely encourage it.
