Race for the Cure in Washington D.C. June 3rd 2006

Here is Jackie, Mom K and Becky really enjoying themselves at the Race for the Cure 2006 in Washington D.C. Jackie and Becky are wearing their cool hats provided by McDonald's, one of the race's big sponsers and mom is wearing her pretty pink scarf provided by the Ford Company. Without these sponsers among many others, we wouldn't get any closer to finding the cure to breast cancer.... so THANK YOU!!!

Here Mom K and Jackie are checking out each other's signs. We did the race to celebrate Mom K and Grandma Keely's recovery from breast cancer and to remember my Great Grandmother Sarah Boyer who passed away from breast cancer. One day hopefully, there will be no more deaths from breast cancer. Remember to do monthly self breast exams!

Although the day was windy and rainy at times, there was a great turn out for the race! The people on the left of the picture are starting the race and the people on the right of the picture are about half way through the race (5K total length). Also unseen in the picture is the white house to the left and the Washington Monument to the right. The Capital is straight ahead just off to the right :)
