Last Saturday at our final The Breast Lemonade Ever lemonade stand, we made $105.15. When we added that to the roughly $140 from the previous lemonade stand and donations from our friends and family, we raised a total of $480.83. (You can still donate here through the end of October.)
A mammogram for one uninsured woman is roughly $125, so we may have saved three women from breast cancer.
About 30,000 people showed up Sunday to the Race for the Cure, according to the Orange County Register, and holy Hades was it hot! By mid-day the temperature was in the 100s, so I would imagine it was at least in the 90s when we started the run at 9:45 a.m.
I was hoping to finish in less than 35 minutes, but I came in at 40 minutes and 23 seconds. However, I’m going to blame the scorching heat and brutal hills for my slow running time.
After the 5k run, The Breast Team headed down home to Pizza Port for some celebratory pizza and beer. We met up with friends who couldn’t make the race and had some of the best pizza and beer in San Clemente. (I’m not a Pizza Port affiliate, just a pizza and beer lover.)
Fighting breast cancer (improving the world)
+ Morning run (improving self)
+ craft beer (countering any self improvements)
+ friends (having fun)
+ hot, sunny day
= a perfect day.
Thanks again for the support and donations! We’re already looking forward to next year!
