A Sea of Pink!!

This morning, Maddi, my mum and myself participated in the 5km Walk/Run to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness. Despite the drizzle the event attracted over 2000 women of all ages and fitness levels!
TV personalities, Rebecca Gibney and Jessica Marais from "Packed to the Rafters" participated as well, both sharing stories of how breast cancer has affected the lives of peple they know and hold dear.
The streets of Launceston were a "sea of pink" for a little over an hour. It was a fun, easy walk (no we didnt run!!) and a great way to raise some money for a good cause.
Some people went to that little extra effort and co-ordinated head gear with their bright pink shirts. Still on the subject of pink:
A little sneak peek of a new design. Just the pattern writing to finalise, so pop back soon for a reveal and a giveaway!!

Good for all of you, Rose! How nice to know that the run is worldwide! My mom and dad lived with us 9 months...coming down from Alaska to Oregon US for breast cancer care. She had almost no chance of surviving and it still alive 7 years later! My son ran this race many times in her honor, but our pink isn't as hot as yours ;) My mom loved the scarves and commemorative pins he'd collect for her. It's a wonderful cause!!!
