Girls for the cure

Danielle's school was one of six all-girls schools in Montreal to participate in the Girls for the Cure walk. I love this photo (not mine, but supplied by the organization) because it shows this beautiful sea of pink with Montreal in the background. The event took place at Mont-Royal Park which happens to be one of my favorite places in Montreal.

Over 2,300 girls participated in this annual event. They came together to take action against female-related cancers. While I so wish we didn't have to have events to fundraise for cancer, it's heartening to see this enthusiasm and watch these girls rally for a cause. Unfortunately, many of the girls in this photo have already been affected by female-related cancers, or will be, one way or another.
