Race for the Cure in Sacramento

Geri and Donna, two amazing women!


Every year the Susan B Komen Foundation sponsors a 5k run/walk to raise funds for breast cancer research and screenings.  This year we were invited to join a team from Anna's work, Geri's Gang of Support.  There were 14 of us who walked together, while there were 13,500 who participated!  It was a pretty amazing sight.  Most of the participants were in white tee shirts, with bright pink ones worn by those who are survivors of this horrible disease.  We had two survivors in our group; Geri, who organized us and Donna, who is Anna's mom and our dearest friend.

Arriving at our table to meet the Gang.

At the finish line!

Breast cancer research has come so far in the last 10 years.  We can all hope that a cure will be found in the next 10.
