Locals participate in Race for the Cure


Paige Kiehl

Instead of sleeping in Sunday morning, 3,000 of my closest friends and I decided to go for a little run. More specifically, the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, which helps raise awareness and money for a breast cancer.
Surrounded by survivors, families and friends affected by the severe disease made me realize how precious and fleeting life can be. From personal experience, I know the damage cancer can do, and sometimes time doesn’t heal all the wounds. It’s possible to feel alone in suffering, but there are many out there that know the feeling of loss.
While cancer has a long list of cons, there is a silver lining, perhaps being surrounded by an encouraging network of people. Here are photos of all the beautiful people who decide to wake up early for a great cause.
