The 5K Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure kicks off Saturday and is likely to draw 40,000 runners and walkers to the National Mall.

You probably heard about the “pink firefighter” who has become a crusader against breast cancer after he lost three sisters to the disease. (If not, go read it right now.) We also have tips from Dr. Gridlock on how to get to the staging area.

YOUR TAKE: Are you running Race for the Cure?

Whether you're running, walking or just cheering someone on, upload photos of the person you wish to honor and tell us about their experience in the caption. Tweet us your race photos with #DCRaceForTheCure, or upload them to our photo gallery here.
