Pink Shamrock 5K

This year I got to participate in the Pink Shamrock 5K that benefits a local non-profit 1 in 9.  The 1 in 9 organization helps women who are uninsured or underinsured deal with the financial burden of being diagnosed with breast cancer.  Nationally 1 in 9 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer.  One of the dental offices that I work at has a doctor who just recently came back to work after battling it out with her cancer diagnosis. Our office decided to do this 5K and try to raise money for this great organization.  We raised over $3,000 and are continuing to raise more money as we can.  We just had a raffle for Zoom Whitening and I'm sure we'll have more things as the year goes on.  The office is mainly women (we have one guy who works there) so we are all about womens' cancers.

We met at the office and drove to downtown Raleigh for the race.  It was a cool and rainy day.  I think that kept a lot of people away...but not us.  We were pink and proud!  A big group walked the 5K and a few of us ran.  I ran with was her first 5K!!  YAY!!  We had a great time as an office and raising awareness for breast cancer!
