Pink Painted bikini and big hearts Race for the Cure

The sun was shining and the pink was popping at the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in DC. There were so many inspirational stories. While hosting the pre-show I met awesome people like a guy who painted a pink bikini on him in name of his grandmother who has breast cancer. Andrea Roane shined as the Mistress of Ceremonies and the WUSA9 booth in Komen Village created a mob fest! So much fun! Thank you to all who came out!

Honoring the Promise was one of the most beautiful events I have attended in Washington. The gala/concert commemorating Ambassador Nancy Brinker’s promise to her sister to find a cure 30 years ago brought more than the stars out— it gave hope. Network news anchor and breast cancer survivor Robin Roberts was an excellent emcee and survivor stories from Cynthia Nixon, Olivia Newton-John and Australian singing sensation Delta Goodrem touched the heart. Former First Lady Laura Bush got a standing ovation as she was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Distinction Award. Tory Burch (with a magnificent necklace!) presented DC’s First Lady Michelle Fenty with the Community Distinction Award for her work with the Capital Breast Care Center. The night raised $1.9 Million dollars.. the most Komen has EVER raised in one evening.

Using Her Powers: Lynda Carter for Komen

I had the pleasure of sitting down and chatting with ‘Wonder Woman’ herself, Lynda Carter in her gorgeous Potomac home.

 We talked about her strong stand against breast cancer and being a ‘pioneering sister’ in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. She recalls the time she was told not to use the word ‘breast’ when testifying before Congress. Oh how far we have come!
