21st annual Susan G. Komen Seattle Race for the Cure


Thirty-year breast cancer survivor Denise Wingo-McKinion, of Seattle, holds up a rose as she dances to music with her grandson Jayden Wingo, 11, left, during festivities at the 21st Annual Susan G. Komen Puget Sound Race for the Cure at Seattle Center's South Fountain Lawn on Sunday, June 1, 2014. An estimated 8,000 participants helped raise about a million dollars, most of which will be reinvested locally to help provide basic needs to low-income individuals diagnosed with breast cancer and to provide free or low-cost mammograms. In their polls, the Komen Foundation found that about three quarters of participants have been diagnosed with breast cancer themselves or have a close friend or family member with the illness. About 1,000 women a week are diagnosed with breast cancer in Washington State, making it one of the nation's highest rates.


Women hold signs displaying the number of years they have been survivors as the Survivor Parade marches past the Armory during festivities at the 21st Annual Susan G. Komen Puget Sound Race for the Cure.
