Pink flash mob raises breast cancer awareness

A pink flash mob broke out in Reston Town Center to raise breast cancer awareness this weekend.

About 100 people, decked out in pink T-shirts emblazoned with the words “In It Because I Care,” danced for about three minutes to promote breast cancer awareness month and the 2012 Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.

According to the WTOP report, the three minutes represent the statistic that a new breast cancer diagnosis is made every three minutes in the U.S.

Women in Washington are being diagnosed with breast cancer at twice the national rate and have one of the highest death rates in the country.
