      D.C. Race for the Cure forecast Saturday

      Get ready for a sea of pink along the National Mall tomorrow morning.{ } It's the 25th annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in our Nation's Capital.{ } It promises to be a positive and uplifting day in hopes of raising awareness and money for breast cancer research.{ }

      Pre-race festivities begin at 6:30am with the event kit pick-up and survival reception.{ } Our very own Jacqui Jeras will speak at the survival reception and will be in attendance with her mom who is a breast cancer survivor.{ }

      The opening ceremony starts at 7:30am.{ } Both Jacqui Jeras and ABC7's Alison Starling will emcee the event.{ } The runners take off at 8am and the walkers at 8:15am.{ }

      Race weather will be a little damp.{ } You'll want to bring the rain jacket, as there could be a few isolated showers/sprinkles.{ } The good news is it doesn't look like there will be any widespread, heavy rain to deal with.{ } Temperatures will start out pre-race in the mid to upper 60s with low 70s expected by the end of the race.

      Metro will open at 5am.{ } The Metro Center, Smithsonian, and Federal Triangle stops will be your best option.{ } The race starts at Constitution Ave and 15th St. NW.{ }

      Even with a few showers possible tomorrow morning, I don't think it will dampen the mood in D.C. on Race Day.{ } Tomorrow we fight, to raise awareness and money for breast cancer research.{ } We come together as a community to offer support to those who have lost the battle, those who are fighting, and for the survivors.{ } Breast cancer has affected too many of us.{ } We will find a cure.

      Make sure you stop by the ABC7/NC8/Politico tent to say hi and receive a few free goodies.{ } We'll see you there!
