I've had the materials to make multiple wreaths for a long time, and I finally succeeded! I watched my fantastic sister make wreath after wreath and was inspired to try one my self... so all it took was a little baby girl! Christi's baby shower seemed like the perfect time to make myself do it! I used some already fantastic cupcake liners from William Sonoma and 5 long hours later, TADA! Not gonna lie, I am pretty proud of it, so Christi, I hope you like it as much as I did!

For Salt Lake City, May 9th was the date of the 14th annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, for me it was my second annual as a committee member and just as good as the first year! To see all the people that come out to participate is so inspiring. Our little committee (I am the Cure) gathers the cheerleaders that line the race. This year the 5 of us on our committee organized over 250 cheerleaders and 2 drumlines! We are on the best committee for sure... all the cheerleaders are from different high schools around the Salt Lake Valley and they were great to work with.These were the final numbers as of May 13, 2010 the donation amount could continue to raise, and 75% of what is raised stays in the valley.
Shane and his family (Brad and Laurel- Luke not pictured but participated) all ran the race to commemorate their aunt and sister Bethany Wilkinson Thompson, who's long-time battle with Breast Cancer is a constant inspiration.
After the race they have a survivors parade, where cancer survivors march in order of the years since their diagnosis. The picture above is the end of their parade, where they gather to get their picture taken. The sheer numbers of survivors altogether creates such an amazing impact!
So if you didn't make it out for this years race plan on it next year... it really is an experience. Not only to support the survivors but also all the people that are there to support the cause.
