2010 Race for the Cure Recap

I just complete my 7th annual Race for the Cure 5K walk, as well as two volunteer stints at the associated health expo at the Oregon Convention Center. Even after all this time, I am still amazed (and moved) by the incredible turnout both at the health expo and on Race day. With an estimated 1 in 8 women going to be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetimes, it’s no wonder that cancer touches so many lives. Talking with survivors, co-survivors, and supporters really brought home to me the devastation that cancer can wreak, and why it is so imperative to get the message out about early detection, and to continue to fund research.
