Especially for You – 5k Recap

A friend of mine ran the Especially for You 5K in 28 minutes.  I walked it in 1 hour, 8 minutes.  But hey, I stopped to take pictures!

Last Sunday’s walk was awesome – more than 10,000 (10,194 to be exact) people came out to Mercy Hospital to show their support and raise money for breast cancer awareness.  The weather was perfect and the sense of community contagious. 

Here are some pictures I was able to snap during the walk.

    This was my first Especially for You event–it was truly moving witnessing all those people (over 10,000) lined up to fight breast cancer!

    I had a great time, usually I am not much of a walker, however walking with friends makes the time go faster, and it was for a great cause. I was surprised to see so many people out there supporting the cause, this will definitely be on my annual list of regularly-attended events. Thanks for the pictures.
