Saturday, I had the opportunity to participate in my first Komen Race for the Cure event. I've covered several Race events before, but I've never been able to attend. I knew it would be emotional, but beyond that I really didn't know what to expect. I left feeling so inspired by the women and men who crossed the stage in the survivors' parade. Each person has their own story of survival and to go through that and to be strong and spread a message of hope... wow, I was just very impressed. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again at next year's events and am honored to have taken part this year.
