Check Us Out in Pink! by Jessica Hodges
Last Sunday, October 20th, Team Shoplet walked in Making Strides’s Walk for Breast Cancer Awareness in Central Park!
It was certainly rough for each and every one of us to roll out of bed on an early Sunday morning, but the weather was wonderful and everyone was in cheerful spirits (though, I’m pretty sure that the nature of our meeting spot, the Starbucks on 72nd and Columbus, had a bit to do with it– mmmm, pumpkin lattes!).
The registration booths were packed! There were so many pumped up people, ready to gobble up the five miles ahead of them in one bite! Come to think of it, despite how freakishly early in the morning the event was, there weren’t any grouchy sleepy heads to be seen.
Team Shoplet was proud to done its pink bracelets! This year, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Making Strides event, donors who raised $20 or more qualified to receive an anniversary bracelet. How cool?!
The day was gorgeous! Check out those lovely fall colors :)
And check out our good lookin’ team ;)
Finally! We made it to Mile 5!!!
A beautiful morning in Central Park? Walking to support the fight against breast cancer alongside a tight knit group of friendly coworkers? Can’t beat that! The day was both glorious and meaningful.
