More than 2,000 walkers and runners packed Glover Park in Marietta, Georgia’s historic square on Saturday, October 27 for the city’s 1st Annual American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk/run. And when they had finished the 3.1-mile course, they had raised $103,000 and counting for the fight against breast cancer. The small town square was awash in pink as teams showed off their best pink outfits — from pink tutus to pink feather boas to pink bunny ears. The pink Chevy pace car led off the event.
Welcoming the crowd to the inaugural Marietta event were Marietta Mayor Steve Tumlin, Society Executive Vice President Paula Mohan and WXIA-TV Anchor Ted Hall.
While the event is over for 2012, it isn’t too late to make a donation. Go to www.makingstridewalk.org.
