Photos: Race for the Cure Denver's attendance down, but not the enthusiasm

When the Susan G. Komen For the Cure Foundation ended its partnership with Planned Parenthood earlier this year, the result was a firestorm of criticism about politicizing Race for the Cure, an event that's about ending the scourge of breast cancer, not competing ideologies. The decision was reversed, but observers still wondered if participation in this year's Race would be impacted. The answer at yesterday's edition was a clear yes: Attendance was down, and down considerably. But those who participated were as enthusiastic as ever, as is clear from the photos below.
