Photo Description

This special black and white photograph was taken during the weekend of the 2008 Y-ME Breast Cancer Race to Empower, which was held in Chicago.  Once the race was over and the sun set, office lights from Chicago's skyskrapers lit up to show support for the special event.

This specific race celebrated the Y-ME 30th Anniversary year.

Each year on Mother’s Day, the organization holds the Y-ME Race to Empower in Chicago. In 2006, nearly 40,000 people took part, raising a total of $6 million in Chicago, Denver, Houston, Miami, Sacramento, San Diego, Seattle, Tulsa and Washington, D.C. Eighty percent of each dollar raised benefits programs and services offered free of charge to those seeking information and support when facing breast cancer.

Y-ME's symbol is an inverted pink awareness ribbon (inverted because it forms the "Y" in Y-ME and because Y-ME is "where to turn when your world turns upside down" by a breast cancer diagnosis), and the organization partners with corporate sponsors to offer products displaying the ribbon or in pink.
