Komen Race for the Cure

Saturday October 13, 2013

October is Breast Cancer awareness month. The annual Race for the Cure in Virginia Beach took place yesterday. It was a beautiful fall day perfect for a 5k!

Some Facts About Breast Cancer:
Other than skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the United States

Breast cancer does not only target women, men can have breast cancer as well. About one percent of all breast cancer cases in the United States occurs in men.

The boardwalk seems to turn into a sea of pink for a few hours every year in this day. Participants range from survivors, fighters, friends, supporters, spouses, children, brothers, mothers, sisters, daughters, and more. There were over 2000 participants. Several local businesses provided swag, support, and donations. Some even participated in the event as well.
