Race for the cure

I realize this isn't crafty, but it is inspiring nonetheless. Last Saturday, me and a huge group of family and friends went down to the Susan G Komen Walk for the Cure in Salt Lake City. My grandma was diagnosed with breast cancer a couple years ago and is now a free and clear survivor so many of us were walking for her. This is only my first race but I am totally addicted now. There was such an amazing spirit there! It was great to see survivors and supporters coming together to celebrate and give memory to those affected by breast cancer. I would highly recommend participating in a race like this, you won't regret it!

My Oma, the Survivor in Pink!


You can see her smiling as cute as could be on the right side with all the other survivors.

At one point, they had all the survivors get up together for a picture and they played the song, "Thank You For Being A Friend." This is what life is all about, helping each other out in hard times and inspiring each other to keep trying. There is no way I would have done this race alone. It was such a great opportunity and one I will never forget.
