the 5th annual Kids Runway for Research
September is Childhood Cancer awareness month & there aren't nearly enough days in the month to properly honor all of the kids who have been affected by cancer. The wonderful folks from Kids Runway for Research, however, do a great job every September of putting together a truly amazing event that not only raises awareness of the prevelance of childhood cancer, but also raises funds for much needed research, and most importantly, gives amazing local childhood cancer survivors a chance to shine!
We've been really honored to dress models for the last four years & today's show was no exception. Please take a moment to honor the heroes we dressed in the pictures below.....they're truly amazing kids!
