May is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Perhaps the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is the most well-known of fundraising efforts for breast cancer research. In Sacramento, California, the annual race is usually on Mother's Day weekend.

This year, as in past years, thousands of women and their families and friends dressed in pink hats and pink bows to walk and run to make money for this worthy organization. After the spirited warm-up that starts the event at Cal Expo, the colorful throng proceeds through the streets for several miles. Serious runners, quick walkers, relaxed amblers, all spending their morning with supportive people. Doing their part to search for a cure.

Kanika Marshall donates at least 10% of all wearable survivor art sales to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Many more beautiful survivor necklaces are available on the Kanika African Sculptures website.
