St. Louis Komen Race for the Cure- signed up!
I just registered my family for this year’s Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure on June 12, 2010. Each year since 2000 our family and extended family has participated in the St. Louis Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, it’s one of the biggest in the country.
In 1999 my wonderful, funny, sweet, loving sister-in-law, Bobbie Brennan, was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. We all walked as a family to support her fight in June 2000. It was an AWESOME event! By March 2001 at 49 years old, Bobbie lost her battle with breast cancer. She left behind a loving husband, 3 children and missed out on seeing her daughter give birth to triplets, her first grand children(pictured here with The Bug Man). Bobbie’s family and friends all still gathered in June that year to walk in Bobbie’s memory, and we have continued the tradition every year since then! The picture to the left is one of Hollywood’s favorite pictures of her and Aunt Bobbie! ? It just show’s how much she enjoyed and loved her! Our team, Brennan-Nickel Brigade now walks every year in Bobbie’s memory and in support of Teri Nickel, Bobbie’s niece who fought breast cancer shortly after and has been in remission for several years now! Our family has grown, Bobbie now has 7 grandchildren, and our team has grown! This picture was taken last year of part of our team along with our team banner.
Over 66,000 people gathered for the 11th Annual Race downtown St. Louis in June 2009. The event raised over 3.2 million dollars in the fight against breast cancer, with 75% of those funds staying in St. Louis to help organizations provide breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs.
