~Mom's on the Run for Breast Cancer and Simple & Sweet Fridays #219~

(Me, Bernadette and Charmaine)
my sisters
I wanted to share with you what I did on Mother's Day!
I walked in the 
16th Annual Mom's on the Run for Breast Cancer in Reno, Nevada!
Stan surprised me and we flew from
San Diego to Reno to participate.
The view from the plane of the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains
covered in snow was breathtaking!
My sisters have been involved in this event for years,
and I've always wanted to walk in it.
The race is a 5k Walk and a 5k/10k Run.
It starts out at Reno High School.
There were about 4,000 people that attended.
It was raining the day before but,
the day of the race was perfect!
We walked by the Truckee River which was beautiful!
It was fun seeing all the people in the race with their costumes!
Even the dogs!!
Cute Outfits!!
Even the police were dressed up for the event!!

(me, Charmaine, Jenay-Bernadette's daughter, Bernadette)
We were given pink carnations and water at the finish line!

participate in this great event!!

Hope you all had a good Mother's Day weekend!

  7. Jody,
    What a fantastic surprise from Stan! Your photos look like you all had an incredible time together supporting breast cancer awareness. Both my maternal grandmother and mother had breast cancer. My grandmother died from cancer, but my mother was a 20+ year survivor.


  8. Jody, thank you so much for supporting the breast cancer awareness. A sweet friend is battling this as I write this.

  9. Dear Jody, what a fantastic thing to do. Love this post.

  10. How wonderful that you walked in this annual event, Jody. Wow, I haven't been to Reno in such a long time. The Truckee River is pretty. I have a friend who participates in this often, and I think it's such a special event.

    love, ~Sheri
