Photo Of The Day: NYC Pink Over Breast Cancer Awareness Month

by SARAH MANDATO · October 13, 2009

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, painting New York City pink through various fundraiser events. This past weekend, the Avon Walk traversed the concrete playground, ending in Hudson River Park with an impressive $9.5 million raised for the cause. We very much enjoyed some participants wearing the Save the Tata's shirt reading, "Save a Life, Grope Your Wife." That is the perfect example of how there are countless ways to show support, and each little bit helps. Above, New Jersey governor Jon Corzine joins the crowd in Sunday's 16th Annual Susan G. Komen Race for the cure next door in New Jersey. Haven't figured out what you're going to do to take part in spreading awareness? Hop to it! It's more important than your Halloween costume...
