Early Saturday morning, my son Kris and I walked to Broughton Street to participate in the 2nd annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. In only two years, this new event for Savannah has become the largest race held here in our city. The 1K/5K event wound through the historic district around squares and Forsyth Park, ending at Telfair Square where cheering crowds and much needed refreshments were waiting.
This is a special event for me since I am a 20 years survivor this year. Sadly, this time I ran in memory of a dear friend who lost her more than 6 year battle with breast cancer this past year.
Hopefully, money raised from events like these and other donations will make it possible to find a cure for this horrible disease.
