Toledo -- Power of Pink Day has people all over Toledo wearing pink to bring awareness to breast cancer.

Students and staff at Toth Elementary School, in Perrysburg, are donning pink to show support for a teacher who survived breast cancer. They're also using the day to teach kids about breast cancer awareness.

People working at the Lucas County Clerk of Courts Office are also sporting pink. They've been personally affected by breast cancer. One of their co-workers is a breast cancer survivor.

Michelle DeWarrd says she's amazed and overwhelmed. Her colleagues' show of support makes her feel very special. 

DeWarrd won her battle against breast cancer six years ago.

The 14th annual Komen Northwest Ohio Race for the Cure is Sunday, September 30th. 

It's not too late to sign up. You can go to Bronde's Ford in Maumee today from 10 until 6 or tomorrow from 10 to 4.
