Susan G Komen Race for the Cure 2011

One Saturday in June for the last 13 years, downtown St. Louis turns into a sea of pink. And every year, for the past 11 years our family has been there, along with the other 60,000-70,000 other people for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.

Susan G Komen Race for the Cure 2011

We walk in memory of my husband’s sister, who walked with us the first year and lost her battle the following year.  Words can’t describe the feeling in that crowd!

“There is no way to describe it other than a mass of humanity looking to bring a singular happy ending to thousands of frightening stories.”
