Making Strides to End Breast Cancer

Last weekend I was an event photographer for the fabulous Making Strides Against Breast Cancer charity walk in Kansas City. It started out chilly , but it turned into a beautiful day. Best of all – the event raised over $322,000 for the American Cancer Society’s fight to end breast cancer! This year I walked the route with my camera, so I got to see some great views of the city flooded in pink.

Day 301: A Color Debate

This is the Broadway Bridge on the north side of downtown. I know the colored lights have been added this month to promote Breast Cancer Awareness month, but don’t you think they look more like Halloween lights?

This bridge in downtown Kansas City is lit with pink, or maybe orange(?), lights.

Day 281: It’s “Pink” Month

In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s breast cancer awareness month. Pink is everywhere. I was actually late to work the first day of October because they were installing pink lights on the Broadway Bridge downtown. I don’t mean to complain … awareness is important. By now I think everyone is aware; in my opinion prevention is key. If you’re a female 40 or older, get a yearly mammogram! Now on to the photo.

The water in this fountain has been dyed pink for breast cancer awareness month. I see symbolism in this image. Hopefully one day children like those in this fountain will never have to worry about cancer.
