Race for the Cure - Granny's Gang

This weekend I had the privilege to participate in the Race for the Cure in Tulsa, OK. My Grandmother is currently going through chemo treatment for Breast Cancer so we thought what better way to encourage her and others than to participate in this event. We have 15 family members and a few friends come out early Saturday morning for Granny's Gang. The weather was beautiful not to hot and little humidity which can be rare in Oklahoma. We all participated in different ways. My cousin loves to run so he did the timed 5K. Several of them did the un-timed 5K and most all of us did the 1K.

If you'd like to find out more how you can participate you can visit Susan G. Komen for the Cure Website. There will be an upcoming Race for the Cure Event in Oklahoma City, OK on Oct 9th.

Here are some fun photos from our day!

It was a wonderful day and I hope it encouraged my Grandmother and the thousands of other that were there! She has 1 more Chemo treatment and is doing well so far. If you can't run or walk for the cure you can always find a way to support. It's as easy as buying  yogurt with the pink lids and mailing them in.

Calleigh, after my mom got breast cancer I started buying the yogurt with the pink lids and sending them in! I love that you are showing your support by participating in a walk/run for cancer research!
