Attendance at yesterday's Race for the Cure in downtown Denver was estimated at 30,000. Even though the total is roughly equal to the number of participants in 2013, the sum still must be considered progress given sharp declines the preceding two years: Approximately 50,000 took part 2011and 40,000 in 2012, with the dip attributed to a (since-reversed) decision by Susan G. Komen for the Cure to end its partnership with Planned Parenthood a couple of years back. Still, photos from the Susan G. Komen Colorado Facebook page show that those who took to the streets early yesterday were in high spirits. Check out a sampling of photos below, and to see more, click here.
