Attendance at yesterday's Race for the Cure in downtown Denver was estimated at 30,000.

Komen for the Cure to end its partnership with Planned Parenthood a couple of years back. Still, photos from the Susan G. Komen Colorado Facebook page show that those who took to the streets early yesterday were in high spirits. Check out a sampling of photos below, and to see more, click here.
