Pretty In Pink

Race for the Cure is all about breast cancer survivors. The highlight of the morning is not who crosses the finish line first (although we love those elite runners), but the Survivor Tribute on the back steps of Pacific Life. If you’ve been there you know the power of the music combined with the pride, strength and tears on survivors’ faces. If this year will be your first Race, don’t miss the ceremony at 9 a.m. sharp on Sunday, September 27.

Breast cancer survivors belong to a special club that no one signs up for. They deserve the “group hug” they get on Race Day.

The special treatment for survivors begins when they register. They get a special pink T-shirt and visor, courtesy of national Race sponsor Zeta Tau Alpha. They’ll get a pink re-usable tote bag from local sponsor Mobile Edge. On Race Day, breast cancer survivors are offered coffee and food, beads, a rose, a parade and that special tribute.  More information regarding breast cancer survivor recognition is available at www.komenoc.org Remember, all Race t-shirts (including the pink ones) are available at the Race Registration Suite at Fashion Island, starting Saturday, September 5 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

  6. Looking good girl. See you tomorrow.

  7. Monica, you do look mahvelous! But I noticed that you had to alter the shirt to make it more “Woman-friendly.” Why isn’t the shirt a Woman’s T-shirt in the first place? After all, we are all women, aren’t we? I think we all should ask that the survivor’s shirts be Womens shirts for the 2010 race!!!!

  8. Hi Carolyn,

    Thanks for your comment and for your support. We are proud to have you join us as a survivor! All our t-shirts are a basic, standard cut – which has the widest range of sizes and helps keep costs low. Please check out http://www.OCKomenMerchandise.com for some great women’s cut shirts!
