Thursday Thirteen - 127 - 13 Ways My Corporate Team Walked For the Cure


- 1

My sister and me, sporting sparkly hats that she made for us. She also made my scarf.



- 2

When we drove across the bridge, heading for the Commons (where participants gathered) we saw this bus. "Follow that bus!" my sister said, to herself, as she was driving.


- 3

We handed in our donation money at the brand new Citadel High, across from the Commons.


- 4

As we walked back to the participants area, we met my best friend's daughter, shown here second from left. She was with several friends from Sacred Heart, all volunteering for the Run for the Cure.


- 5

We met up with my corporate team, including breast cancer survivor Dianne, standing second from left in a pink boa.



- 6

One of the members of a special-project team of which I'm a part at the office. We're working hard at turning our agency mission statement into practical applications. It's challenging work and I'm very proud of it.







- 7

One of the members of my day-to-day team. She and I each sing in a choir.










- 8

Everyone gathers for opening remarks.




- 9

Then we do a warm up. There were lots of pink babies everywhere.




- 10

And loads and loads of dogs decked out in pink bows, pink shirts, pink scarves - you name it.



- 11

The runners who actually Ran for the Cure had already set out when all the walkers passed the starting line.



- 12

Look at how many...!




- 13

Of course, because it's Nova Scotia, we passed a piper beside Public Gardens. A man just ahead of us said, "Make noise for the piper!" and we all gave him a whoop.

My sister and I had a fantastic time and plan to do this again next year.

A squeezy-huggy thank you to all of my sponsors!

Janet says I'm glad you all had a good time :-)

Brenda ND says Bless you and your corporate team!

Tracie says Great pictures, and most importantly a great cause!!

How fun to have a piper - but, erm, what is he dressed as? A white nun? A nurse? I didn't get his outfit.

yours, on the other hand, was fab.

We haven't been able to walk in one of these yet, but they always get some of our dollars.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Love it! I'd do the Race when it's here -- on Mother's Day every year -- but you have to park twice the distance from the course length! Let me bike and I'm there!

Thomma Lyn said...

Fabulous! Great cause, great pictures, great hearts. :)

Robin said...

Well done you!

PS Sorry I haven't been around much lately. One night last month I was short on new reading material and decided to reread Patrick O'Brian's Master and Commander (we own the whole series but it had been years since I'd read it). Devious man ends every book with the beginning of the next story, and I couldn't remember how most of them went. Long story short I'm now in the middle of book 10. Sigh... Loving it though, even more than the first time around.
