Painting The Town Pink

Miss Iggy isn't just all about leisurely travel. She decided to put her best foot forward by joining the 8th Annual Saint Clare's Walk for Breast Cancer Awareness in Rockaway, New Jersey on a gorgeous Sunday morning this September. See Miss Iggy's pink ribbon? The 5km walk is also a fundraiser to support the cancer care facility of Saint Clare's Hospital in Denville.

Mr. Iggy himself has walked for Down Syndrome in Manila last March.

It was like a pink fiesta with all the pink balloons and shirts, even dogs in pink costumes. The walk was led by a group of cancer survivors, then followed by each team. Miss Iggy joined a team of Filipino nurses who participated in this walk for the first time...just like Miss Iggy herself!

The ADD Systems Team ranked number one by raising $17, 000! With such a huge amount of money in donations, this walk inspired everyone that we're steps closer to a cure for breast cancer--because everyone deserves to be in the "pink of health."
