walking for kate

I walked 5k for Kate Brussé on Saturday. I had never met her before, but she's a reporter at my newspaper.

When I started work she was out on doctor-ordered bedrest, pregnant with triplets hoping her babies would be born healthy. During her pregnancy she found out she had breast cancer about 24 weeks into her pregnancy. She and her children survived and she has a pretty incredible story, which the Statesman wrote about.

Saturday was Race for the Cure. The Statesman formed a team and we ran/walked the 5k for her.

Left is Mia Parrish, Statesman publisher, and managing editor Bill Manny (in navy) looks at the babies. In the foreground Kate's husband Chad Brussé holds the third baby, kneeling to the others. Executive editor Vicki Gowler and reporter Katie Kreller try to fit a baby bag under the stroller.
