My sister and me, sporting sparkly hats that she made for us. She also made my scarf.
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.
We handed in our donation money at the brand new Citadel High, across from the Commons.
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.
We met up with my corporate team, including breast cancer survivor Dianne, standing second from left in a pink boa.
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.
One of the members of my day-to-day team. She and I each sing in a choir.
Everyone gathers for opening remarks.
Then we do a warm up. There were lots of pink babies everywhere.
And loads and loads of dogs decked out in pink bows, pink shirts, pink scarves - you name it.
The runners who actually Ran for the Cure had already set out when all the walkers passed the starting line.
Look at how many...!
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!!
