This weekend is special.
This weekend we come together to tell breast cancer that it will not be the end. It will be what we overcome. And we will do it as a community.
No other Susan G Komen Race for the Cure is quite like Findlay’s. Yes, it is a 5k. Yes, you will find a lot of pink. But this is not really a race. This is a movement we’re creating.
This is a chance for us to celebrate the survivors in our community. Those that have faced down breast cancer and fought tooth and nail. We celebrate those survivors that are still with us, and those whose memories push us forward to fight.
But there are the others we celebrate too. There are those that are just taking that first step in their own fights. They may be at the start line. They may be on the sidelines cheering. Wherever they are, we are taking our steps to show them it’s worth the fight and that we will be with them.
There are those that have loved someone who is no longer with us. We are taking our steps to show them that we care and have shoulders to cry on.
There are those that are leading the real race to find a cure. We are taking our steps to show them that this race will not be lost.
As the sea of pink overtakes our community this weekend, just remember that we are all in this fight together. This is not a race. This is a movement. And when we come together as a movement, breast cancer does not stand a chance.
Be a part of our movement this Saturday at the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure. Let’s show all of our amazing survivors just what our community is made of.
