Every year, the Rally Foundation does a fabulous fund raiser called Rally on the Runway, held at Bloomingdale's in Lenox Square. The event features about a dozen girls who are fighting or have survived cancer. Last year Catherine was a "model," which meant that she had a mini makeover and was escorted down the aisle by an Atlanta Falcon. She had an absolute blast last year.
This year Catherine was invited back as an "alumni model." She was so excited. As soon we drove into the Bloomingdale's parking lot, Catherine started screaming that we were at "her" fashion show. Both she and Sabrina had their make-up done by the professionals there:
It is such a heartwarming event. Several of the girls are bald due to chemotherapy. Some of the girls, including Catherine last year, are so tiny that the professional football players have to bend down ridiculously low just to hold the girls' hands. The contrast of the tiny little girls, many who look so fragile, and the healthy muscular men is stunning.
