Susan G. Komen has taken a bit of a beating over the past year but I'll give them this: they sure know how to throw one hell of a party. I love Race for the Cure!
Today was the perfect blend of gorgeous weather, friendship, charitable giving, sports, a sense of community, and kicking cancer's ass all of which was punctuated by the truly magnificent backdrop of NYC's Central Park. We even got to strike a pose with Senator Chuck Schumer.
I'm sure all Race for the Cure events around the country are highly spirited and well-attended but nothing compares to the energy generated by over 15,000 New Yorkers in the greatest city in the world. I can't describe it. You just have to feel it to get it.
Team Cool Girls Get Cancer raised $3,062 from 37 supporters. Thank you to everyone for your overwhelming generosity. Next year you'll get your own C.G.G.C shirt if you join the team and run with us!
Finally and most importantly, thank you to the best team ever for making this such a memorable day: Liz, Lisa, Laura, Janet, Karen, Julie, and Andrew!
