paint the path pink

we're having a beautiful day! 

a school in our community held a 5k fun run/walk called "paint the path pink". we joined about 1,000 others to support breast cancer research.

paint the path pink was created 5 years ago when a science teacher's wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. when word got out, it was also discovered that several students had lost their mothers to breast cancer that year. in an effort to support their fellow classmates, teachers, and community, the fun run along with corporate sponsorship and a silent auction has raised and donated over $100,000.

not bad for bunch of junior high kids...

and their dogs!

for more information on paint the path pink, please visit The Passionately Pink Teachers!
