Race For The Cure

It's that time of year where women come together to race for a cure for breast cancer.  Yesterday I came across this photo from a race in 2001.  I was with my sorority sisters, and the guys were cheering us along.  I saw on the today show this morning NYC's race will take place in Central Park this coming weekend.

Everyone of us has a loved one affected by some form of cancer.  I hope we can continue to make advancements towards a cure.  It's the collective small things that can make a big difference.  Even something as small as choosing the color pink when given an option on a product like the pink kitchen aide mixer  in which $50 of the proceeds will be donated to breast cancer research.  It all adds up.  It's the small things that can make the biggest difference.

As Mother Teresa told us, "If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one.  And, In this life we cannot all do great things, but we can all do small things with great love." 

It may be that these small things with great love are the greatest of all things.
