Race for the Cure

Brooke and Jessie had to complete 4 hours of community involvement for their Miss Nevada titles as part of the National competition. They helped our friend, Shelly, organize and set up a team to run in the Susan G. Koman Race for the Cure 5K. Our team had 50 members and raised $2400. Our team was the "Pink Monkey's" and our t-shirt design won first place and $453.30 additional prize money which was donated. It was a very cold day but the girls were genuinely interested and wanting to help and didn't complain. I was very proud of them! The team members that actually ran (5K ) or walked (1 mile) race.My two Queens ready to run.They (and me) were interviewed by one of the Reno TV news channels!On the way home...5K is a long ways for a 6 and 8 year old (and a 33 year old)!
