Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure turns Jerusalem Pink

Great day for a walk

The race for a breast cancer cure started at Gan Sacher and ended at Gey Hinom. Yeah, that Gey Hinom. But the day was anything but hellish as thousands of people from all over gathered to lend support for Breast Cancer Awareness month. This was the first such event run by the Susan G. Komen people in Israel and given the success of today’s efforts it won’t be the last. The race was preceded by the bathing of various parts of Jerusalem in pink light. Fun, right?
