Komen Orange County Marches in Huntington Beach Fourth of July Parade

Komen Orange County was grateful to recently participate in the 108th annual Huntington Beach Fourth of July Parade.  A team of more than 40 survivors marched along Main Street in Huntington Beach to help spread breast health awareness and generate buzz about the upcoming Race for the Cure on Sunday, September 23.

The two mile parade began on the Pacific Coast Highway at 10:00 a.m., turned left onto Main St. and ended just after Yorktown Ave.

Men, women and children of all ages showed their support by wearing pink Komen OC T-shirts and carrying pink pompoms.

Dr. Lisa Guerra, 2012 Survivor Award recipient for Outstanding Breast Health Advocate, waved pink pompoms from the back of a pink Komen OC golf cart.

The Huntington Beach Fourth of July Parade and Festival is said to be the biggest Independence Day celebration in Southern California. Thank you to all of our supporters and survivors who participated in the Huntington Beach Fourth of July parade.
