Some may think it's crazy. Many are overcome with emotion. The energy is nothing but palpable. It was all that and more on a blustery Mother's Day morning in the Twin Cities, but that didn't deter some 7500 runners and over 40,000 walkers from coming out to show their support and motivation for finding a cure to breast cancer.
More than a race, this is an event. Complete with ribbon shaped bagels from Panera. A plentiful selection of Yoplait yogurt lids for licking. And even hot, energy boosts from Caribou.
Susan G. Komen for the Cure is celebrating its 25 year anniversary this year. I had the opportunity to celebrate my second Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure since the launch of the new identity. The day was both personally and professionally touching. It's truly amazing to see our work emblazoned on millions of t-shirts and products every year. I guess that's a testament to our mission at Duffy: to create design that enriches every day life.
