We were overwhelmed by the support that our fans showed to help us launch the first-ever Tutu WALKS for Breast Cancer Awareness. We had a beautiful day and tutus of all colors – but mostly pink of course – were there to enjoy our 1.5 mile walk. Hoboken Mayor Diane Zimmer, her four-legged companion and the Hoboken Police helped us lead the charge. One of the police cars even escorted us with great music to keep the walk moving!
Most importantly, we raised money for the families affected by breast cancer that the Carey Foundation is trying to support. We hope that next year the room is filled with people we helped, and those that helped US get to where we are today. Scroll down to the end to find out where to find more event pictures!
