I am sure you have heard about Susan G Komen and the impact the organization has on the community. Have you heard of the fundraising races? Each year Reno, Nevada is fortunate to be able to host the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure in October, and this year’s was yesterday. The city is flooded with the color pink, and this year it was flooded with a tremendous amount of rain, too!
Miraculously, the rain cleared long enough for the race to occur (as it was going to happen rain or shine) and then started raining once it ended. If that is not a metaphor, I don’t know what is (and I’m an editor, so I know a metaphor when I see one).
This year the race traveled alongside the Truckee River, making for a truly beautiful view of the outdoor possibilities Reno offers. A few Downtown Reno streets were closed to traffic for the race, but being an event town, Renoites are used to this!
Pypeline Editing’s team, Pypeline Pompoms, was there to support the cause. We are honored to participate in this race each year and raise funds to find the cure for breast cancer. We also take advantage of the opportunity to dress up for such an occasion. (Look at that pink wig!)
So, this blog will resume tips and editor secrets next week. For this week, we plan to be thankful. We are thankful for our team members (especially those with us in spirit), we are thankful for our fundraisers and we are thankful for all of those who support Susan G Komen each and every year. Thank you for supporting Pypeline Editing and its involvement in this race.
Stay tuned next year, we will be doing this again! If you would like to participate, send us an email, we would love to have you. (We have pretty sweet shirts, too!)
