San Francisco Race for the Cure creates awareness and support for those affected by breast cancer

San Franciscan Grant Johnson (in white tank), who won the 5K race in 16:53, begins his 3.1 mile journey. David Green (number 387, gray shirt) of Belmont and Allison Myers (number 390, pink hat, fourth female overall) of Corte Madera take off alongside him.

Thousands of women, men and children filled San Francisco’s Embarcadero on Sunday morning, September 30th, many dressed from head to toe in pink. As the starting fog horn sounded (it was San Francisco, after all), the athletes took off from under a pink balloon arch and headed south towards AT&T Park.

The event was the annual San Francisco Bay Area Komen Race for the Cure, one of hundreds of run/walk events scheduled across the country by the Susan G. Komen Foundation each year to create awareness, raise money, and support those affected by breast cancer. The San Francisco event has raised over $200,000 this year alone for research and treatment support.

Among the thousands of runners and walkers was Roxanne Cohen (right), wearing bib number 2 with a special pink numeral. Roxanne was one of many who participated in the event with a pink bib, meaning that they are either living with metastatic breast cancer or that they are considered a survivor of the disease. Cheerleaders greeted participants as they reached the finish line in front of the Ferry Building, celebrating what was a metaphoric journey for many, either for themselves or for a loved one.

Past the finish line, there was a ceremony for survivors, vendor booths providing healthy snacks, music, and entertainment in the nearby Justin Herman Plaza.

Complete race results for the Timed 5K division can be found here.
