Even more importantly, this 5K was for a cause I care deeply about! This 5K was our bases' run for Breast Cancer Awareness. I was proud to run in honor of my grandmother (a breast and stomach cancer survivor) and my great aunt (a breast cancer survivor). I hope that this run, the materials that were handed out, and the words from a fellow spouse survivor helped to make people more aware of the disease and early detection.
With over 200,000 new cases of breast cancer in women in the US this year, it's so important that we continue to support reserach and advocacy. One company that is proud to support the cause is Snapfish. Their Pink Gives campaign is donating 30% of proceeds from all specially designed products in their Pink Gives store to BreastCancer.Org. And while they are giving all that away, they even give you free address labels when you spend $10 or more! You support a great cause and get cute stuff!
One thing I love is that Snapfish really takes this cause personally. To them, it is more than an advertising campaign. It's about supporting the women in their office that have battled the disease, and the women everywhere who continue to fight. They know that many of us have watched family members battle the disease, and they want a cure as much as we do! As if it couldn't get any better- they are even offering a giveaway!!
