Beatty family third annual Save the Boobies run, better known as Race for the Cure
A sea of PINK
Finally made it past most of the walkers, and was able to start jogging with the babes in tow. It was a real obstacle course. Anyone who has done these knows what I'm talking about. It was funny though because at the 1 mile mark we passed a man pulling a wagon and at the 2 mile mark we passed a woman walking with a cane!!! How in the world did they get so far in front of us?
Almost done! Jarom was our little navigator. Always telling us to run faster and to turn. He really wanted us to win a trophy. Matt and I were pretty proud of our time of 40 min. One year it took us an hour and a half. So many people come out for this. It's a real neat thing to be a part of. Some of our favorite shirts we saw read: "I support second base" (this was on a man of course), a group of women had "Save the Ta-Tas", some girls had "save the boobies". And then there was my personal favorite "big or small, save them all". I thank my lucky stars that my world has not been affected by this awful disease. And I don't realize until going to these things how many beautiful, sweet women, young and old, fight this to the death. All the survivors and all the people who walk in memory of have truly touched my heart today. It's quite overwhelming to be part of something so grand. We love being part of this. And plan to keep doing it every year we can.
