Both Regis and I enjoy photography. In fact, it was during vacations that I discovered that we share this hobby. We would stop somewhere, go our separate ways, taking pictures of the scenary and more often than not, we would end up with the same pictures! It drives me crazy! 🙂
To avoid any more crazy than I already am, we’ve decided to split the Raid for the Cure (or RFTC for those acronym-inclined) pictures in two – I’ll post pics from the Alliance side of the event and he’ll post his pics from the Horde side. So be sure to check out Regis’ other blog post because Chawa is sure to be in a few of those photos as well!
There was a good party going on in Shadowglen when Gleanna logged on. Pink Mageweave Shirts everywhere you looked, except for the poor NPCs standing around and Gleanna in her red-polka dotted mail shirt. It didn’t take too long before a kindly stranger opened up a chat window and gave her one for free!
Not before too long, the run began! And we were off, running through Teldrassil! And it was very safe! Level 80s patrolled the outskirts of the group, killing anything that might have harmed the many Lv 1s who had been created just to show support for the event!
Travelling by foot (or barefoot as was Gleanna’s case) had never seemed so fast! Running through Darnassus was a sight to see!
The dock was crowded while we waited for the boat. Many took the opportunity to cannonball off the pier!
Reaching Auberdine! The rush through the inn was great to watch!
But it was at this point that I switched to Chawakanda to represent the Horde in this cross-faction event and to participate with my guildies: Lustig, Pacheco and Naturalregis.
Kudos go to Pacheco – the biggest, baddest Tauren Hunter of them all, who wore a Festive Pink Dress for the occasion and as a result, can be spotted in almost every screenshot that is out there in the NetherWeb of Azeroth!
A few things I’d like to highlight. While on Gleanna, she was invited to become a member of the Alliance Guild <Awareness> which I presumed was created solely for this event. After the event was over, I checked back in with Gleanna and was impressed to see that <Awareness> had a total of 87 members.
87 people who took time out of their lives, to stop whatever they were doing to show support to Julie, to the Sidhe Devils, to BigBearButt and to those they may have known to be affected by cancer in some form of another. And this is just 1 number. It doesn’t count the number of people Horde side that participate nor the other Alliance members belonging to the Sidhe Devils or other guilds of Kael’thas! It is truly impressive to see this many people join together for such a cause. As it was said:
