Relay team members after they completed the 72-hour relay race around the White House to bring attention to the fight against women's cancer.
About sixty surgeons, cancer survivors, and their supporters have just finished a three day relay race round the White House to raise awareness about the fight against women's cancers.
Supporters turned out to the corner of 15th Street and Constitution Avenue NW to cheer on participants who were finishing 72 hours of a relay race around the white house.
Jennie McGihon, from the group sponsoring the National Race to End Women's Cancer on Sunday, Nov. 4, participated in the final leg.
"It was great, it's about showing our commitment to the fight against women's cancers and promoting the national race to end women's cancer, on Sunday, November 4 starting at freedom plaza," says McGeehan.
McGeehan was diagnosed with advanced ovarian and uterine cancers three years ago when she was 32. Now, she works to promote the race and endwomenscancer.org.
