Komen Portland Race for the Cure 2010

Team Chests and Drawers walks again!

I am happy to have walked the 5K co-ed loop today.  It’s always so moving to see soooo many supporters and survivors out for a great cause!

Komen of Oregon and SW Washington

The walkers stretch out in front of me down SW Broadway in Portland, OR

Photos snapped from my phone just don’t do this crowd justice.  It’s amazing to see so many people gather for the same cause.  Portland has the largest Race day of the entire West Coast.  That’s pretty remarkable since we are far from the largest city.  Go Portland!

Today is also Talk Like a Pirate Day.  In true Portland fashion, we have a Pirate Festival in my neighborhood of St Johns all weekend to commemorate such an important event.  There were race walkers near us that dressed as pirates in order that they participate in all available festivities of the day!  What a crack-up!

The Pirates had great slogans on their signs:

  • Booty for Boobies
  • Breast Friends
  • Treasure you Chest
  • Save Second Base

Next year I hope you’ll join our team!

    We missed the McCallum branch of the team but had an inspiring and fun time anyway. Thank-you for helping Christine T get things going in the nursery!
    Have a great week, great Sarah!
