Sunday, November 1st 25,000 people ran and walk to help find a cure. The race took place at the Domain in Northwest Austin. Over 2 million dollars was raised! 25% of that goes to the breast cancer research at a national level. 75% of it stays in the Travis, Williamson, Hays, Caldwell, and Bastrop Counties for local programs and research.
I ran the race among many survivors, family members affected by the awful disease, and supporters. It was a beautiful morning with tons of people on the street running and others lining the street cheering. Among those cheering was my husband and dog, Lucki, who were cheering as loud as anyone else on the sidelines. It was truly an amazing adventure. 3.2 miles of running in a group of people all with on purpose in mind “Breast Cancer.” To raise awareness. To educate. To fund research. To honor. To remember. To cherish. It was amazing!! There was a child, about 6 years old, running next to me for a while with a tag with which read “mom” on his back. He trotted along beside me for a while, till his dad and him got water. He was running in honor or memory of his mom. There were tags in honor or memory of many different names on the back of many of the runners. It was inspiring! Even more inspiring were the participants in pink, the survivors. I finished just behind a woman who was a 16 year survivor. It was truly inspiring and motivating.
This day was a wonderful day, full of beauty, inspiration, and above all HOPE!! Hope that one day we will find a cure for cancer of all kinds!
