After finally completing the day's mileage, we met up with Bob and Matt, collected our congratulations and our t-shirts, and then headed into the holding area to wait for the last walker to arrive and the Closing Ceremonies to begin. Colleen put on her pink finisher's t-shirt and joined the survivors, while Lynn, Michelle and Sarah walked in with the rest of the walkers, through another tunnel of crew members. This time we recognized many of them and gave them our gratitude as we headed into the ceremony area. The crew followed in the walkers, which gave everyone a chance to applaud and celebrate, and then the survivors walked in. It was a very moving culmination to the event, from hearing, "We walk because we believe in a world without breast cancer," to the one-shoe salute from the rest of the walkers to the survivors.
