Race for the Cure 2012

Last weekend we participated in the St. Louis Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.  This is the second year that we have walked in honor of my sister-in-law, Debbie.  You can read her story, HERE.

The day started early on Saturday when we all met up to load the bus to get downtown. 

Since we had some extra time, of course, I had to take some pics:

All of the babies:  Ben (4), Gracie (4), Kenzie (3), Caleb (2), Ian (2), Kanin (8) 

Here is Scott with his siblings (minus his brother, Rick).  Jeff, Debbie, Scott, Sherri

We all loved this big head of Debbie.  We had a great time with it.

If you have never been a part of a large march, I urge you to find something you are passionate about and go to a march or a rally.  It is absolutely amazing.  See that blur . . .those are all people marching for a cure for breast cancer. Incredible.

This group of survivors always serenades the walkers right by the finish line.  I love them and it is very emotional to walk by them singing, "I Will Survive".

Here is Debbie crossing the survivors finish line.

The St. Louis Rams players and cheerleaders passed out roses to the survivors.

Here is our entire group after the walk.  It was such an inspiring day and we are so blessed that Debbie cancer-free!
