Who Hates Cancer?

Tens of thousands of men, women, and children who participated in this morning's Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in DC, that's who.

The DC Metro Moms Blog team raised more than $2700 and braved the muggy weather to Race Walk Meander Sweat for the Cure.

See all of us in our early morning, pre-DC heat splendor?


The Sweat-ers for the Cure included: Andrea, Julie, Sandie (and her adorably tiny two and a half month old anti-cancer crusading son), Devra, Jessica, Robin, Leticia, Jodi, Stimey (in the back, standing on my very tippy toes), Nancy, Linda, Jess (who got the whole team started), and MamaBird.

Sarah walked with her family and Mary, Suzie, and Susan slept in for the cure.

Despite the heat, I had a great time this morning, especially at brunch, where I watched these 12 women consume waaaaay more than 12 Bloody Marys. And I also saw this room full of moms completely ignore the giant spears of broccoli on their plates. Because, um...bacon. And Bloody Marys. And home fries.

Not a bad way to help fight breast cancer, eh?

  10. Awesome to see you again, my friend. We must do it again soon, only perhaps without the long walk part. ;-)
