DATE: April 10, 2004 (Saturday)

FUNCTION: Susan B. Komen, Race for the Cure

The 2004 race theme is "The Children of Breast Cancer"

Kids for the Cure was added to recognize the fact that breast cancer impacts kids' lives, too. This year's race will feature entertainment by local children, plus a Kid's Tent with games and activities. Also, children 13 years and younger have a reduced entry fee of $10, and will get their own special T-shirt, designed by kids of breast cancer survivors

Don, thanks for snapping the group photo.

When we pulled out of our neighborhood at 6:30 this morning, we could tell the "cold front" had indeed started coming thru, just as the forecast had warned.

We met at the Alright parking lot, at 7:15 AM, located at the northwest corner of 4th and Lamar Streets (across Lamar Street from the YWCA) downtown Fort Worth

The walk is a 5K (about 3-1/2 miles) and starts in front of Pier One on Houston Street about 3 blocks from the lot where we will meet.  Karyn once again did a SUPER job of coordinating the function, ordering special participant shirts and handling the arrangements at the Seventh Street Café located (2736 W. 7th Street) for brunch, after the walk.

Everyone got their participant tags / numbers pined on, stretched and was ready to go.

Doug & Glenda's daughters, Cassie & Christi, Don (Christi's husband), Ashlyn (their daughter) and Daylen (their son) also joined the Cowtown group for the walk


A cold front moved through between 7:30 and 8:00 am, dropping the temperature from 65 degrees down into the 50s

The crowd thickened as the start of the race was nearing

Looking towards the starting line, as the runners were getting ready to leave - one lady appeared to be running the wrong direction

After the National Anthem and a few words from Scott Murray, it was time for the race/walk to start

On the pink tags you saw attached to people's shirts had the names of Survivors, celebrating their win over cancer along with others listing the names of loved ones that lost their battle
