The view out of our office window just got better. Thursday is the first day of October and the annual Breast Cancer Awareness Month is already underway in Cedar Rapids. 

The NFL splashes pink across their uniforms, bracelets go on and people across the nation honor those who've seen the disease up close. Now Cedar Rapids has a daily reminder of the courageous people battling the illness.

Kudos to the volunteers who used 400 gallons of pink paint at the landfill site. Also, a tip of the hat our friends at the Linn County Solid Waste Agency for happily donating the site for such a good cause.

The Especially For You Race Against Breast Cancer launches from the site this Sunday.
