Keva Juice loves Race for the Cure!

If you haven't heard, we at Keva Juice LOVE ta-tas! :) We are committed to raising funds for Susan G. Komen for the Cure and finding a CURE for breast cancer!

I participated in the Race for the Cure this morning and I had so much fun! Despite the too-cool-for-my-liking weather and gross drizzly rain, I had a great time! Normally I run the race, as I like to be competitive. This year, however, I was lucky enough to have my mom with me, and since she is not a runner, we walked and still had an awesome time! There were over 6,000 participants and I couldn't be more thrilled.

Not only am I a participant in the Race for the Cure, but I am also a member of the Race Committee. This year I was in charge of the Competitive Runner Recruitment Committee and the Sleep in for the Cure Committee. After MONTHS of planning and meetings, this year's event went off without a hitch (even though it rained)!

Plus, I met these sassy, bodacious broads dressed in pink from head to toe! How fun!

As I got started walking with my mom this morning, I got a little teary. In the background I heard the song "I Run for Life" by Melissa Etheridge. While I am not a huge Melissa Etheridge fan, I can't help but be touched by the lyrics of this song. When I participate in a Race for the Cure or a Breast Cancer 3-Day event, I really feel like I am doing something, like I am doing something so much bigger.

I feel so fortunate that my mom was there to walk with me. I know how many people have lost their mothers, sisters, grandmothers, aunts, best friends, coworkers, neighbors, etc. to breast cancer. I promise to do my part in helping to find a cure! I look forward to a day when we will no longer need Races for the Cure and Breast Cancer 3-Days. Until then, we'll keep walking, running, and racing...striving for a CURE.
