For the second year, the Cerney Circle Cleavage Conservation runners and walkers laced up their tennis shoes, piled into cars and headed downtown to the Pepsi Center to take part in Denver’s Race for the Cure.
Not only did the group show their support by attending the event together, they raised more than $2,000 for the charity.
“The money will be able to pay for 20 free mammograms! And every little bit helps,” said Heather Griffin, group organizer.
More than 50,000 supporters of the cause descended into downtown Denver on October 3. Denver’s race is always held the first Sunday in October, breast cancer awareness month. To date, The Denver Race for the Cure has raised more than $12 million in donations and another $2 million in pledges.
“It was another beautiful day to spend with friends and remember those touched by this horrible disease. All in all, a great day remembering loved ones and spending quality time with some of our dearest friends. I wouldn’t move off this block if you paid me!” continued Griffin.
