Race for a Cure

This past weekend, our school, Rudy & Kelly Paul Mitchell Partner School participated in the Breast Cancer Race for a Cure Susan G Komen Foundation here in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

We all met up at 9am dressed in our school tshirts and joined many other supporters, survivors, family and friends to help support this Foundation.

I know a few survivors that have beat the breast cancer and fortunatly none of my close family or friends has lost their battle to breast cancer. I have, however had family members pass away from other types of cancers such as Lung Cancer and Brain Cancer. Losing someone you love to cancer is hard, because you feel so helpless. But I have learned is no matter what, you keep supporting and loving that person.

There was a survivor that got married on stage in front of the entire crowd to a man she fell madly in love with. All of us witnessed their marriage ceremony, and it was a beautiful one at that!! Her hair and makeup was done by students and staff from my school. It is awesome to be apart of that! We all cried and cheered for her and her new husband.

This was an amazing experience that I am proud to have been apart of it.

Here are some pictures, enjoy

That is a dolphin I managed to snap a quick picture of!!!

This baby was sooo happy and kickin his legs out, it was so adorable!
This walk was for every man, woman and child affected by Breast Cancer.

There is a light in this world, a healing spirit
more powerful than any darkness we may encounter.
We sometime lose sight of this force
when there is suffering, and too much pain.
Then suddenly,
the spirit will emerge
through the lives of ordinary people who hear a call
and answer in extraordinary ways.Mother Teresa

Have you participated in helping to find a cure for any type of cancer? This was my first time doing this type of thing, and I will continue to do this every chance I get.

Today, at Rudy & Kelly Paul Mitchell, our school welcomed a new CORE class to our family. There were a lot of people this class, where only 12 to 15 students were in the last core class. Every time a new Core class starts, we have Pancake Day, where we get treated to pancakes, bacon and good ol' O.J.

With October approaching with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we got together today this morning to decorate bra's to auction off next month. 

Carole and I using decorations as antlers or antennas lol

Needles and thread were brought out to help create masterpieces of Bra's

Creativity shined in forms of feathers, sequins and glitter!

Our school is going to participating in the Race for a Cure event in Virginia Beach on October 15th at the oceanfront for the Susan B. Komen Foundation. We are all going to go down there and show our support for those affected by breast cancer.

For more information: see Susan B. Komen website

I am thinking about designing a tshirt for the students to wear (or at least my core class to wear) to help support this walk/run event we are going to. We have the option to wear our black and white tshirts of RKA/ Paul Mitchell but I wanna make something different to celebrate this occasion. I am not gonna do anything too extravagent, but I think something in pink with black or white with pink and a simple design will be nice to wear with a motivational quote.

I mentioned that I will be doing a giveaway soon in a recent post, so for those curious ones, I am going to launch a giveaway this sunday, (possibly saturday night if I can get the time)

I am so excited to be hosting this giveaway, so for those of you who are crafty, love designing, or putting together scrapbooks, or photo albums, you are gonna LOVE this giveaway! So keep your eyes open this weekend!

Quote of the day:

Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
