Del Mar site of cheering station for Komen 3-Day

Picture 2 of 13

The 60-mile Susan G. Komen 3-Day walk against breast cancer came through the Del Mar Village on Nov. 16 after kicking off at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. The event raised more than $6.5 million for breast cancer research, scientific programs and community-based breast health and education programs. Del Mar and surrounding communities showed their support with bubbles and noisemakers, cheerleaders from Torrey Pines High School and volunteer well-wishers — a foursome of golden retrievers was even offering complimentary nuzzles to walkers. Pink balloons, pink streamers and signs decorated the businesses along Camino Del Mar and volunteers handed out water, coffee and other treats.

Overheard by a walker: “Wow, they go all out here.”
