Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk
Posted By: Pentax_XTC, 10-26-2009, 06:57 AM

These are photos from the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Breast Cancer Walk. The participants walk 60 miles over 3 days to raise awareness and money for breast cancer research. I was taking some shots and was approached by the PR Coordinator for the walk. She asked me to send her some of the photos of the event. Maybe they will post them on their website.

Anyway, here is a sample below for your viewing. I was originally trying to work on "capturing a moment" when I was first approached, so their are now some candids mixed in as well. Unfortunately it was cloudy all weekend long, so some of these I had to use fill flash.

Local Brownies handing out ice pops to the walkers:
1.

A Warm face and cool treat:
2.


It's not just the women that walk... He looks good in pink:
3.


Three friends fighting the war on... (read the shirt):
4.


One of the many meaningful banners being carried during the walk:
5.


Making a pit stop:
6.


Even wounded, she still walks for breast cancer research:
7.


A shoulder to lean on and balance on:
8.


Everyone gets into supporting a good cause:
9.


This is my favorite shot of the day:
10.


EMS wearing the Energizer bunny ears ready to "hop" into action:
11.


Local guys showing their support... In their own way:
12.

Those are great. I love the slogans. I have seen a few of the "Save the Tatas" bumper stickers around town. Great moment in the second photo -- sums it all up well.

Thanks. The moment in the 2nd photo is the type of photo I was trying to get that day. I only covered about 1 mile of the event due to a previous commentment, but I next time I hope to cover all 3 days.

Thanks Mike. As soon as I saw the photo on the back of the camera I did a little dance in my head.
