On February 12, 2010 the Olympic Torch Relay will make its way down Denman Street with the torch carried by Judy Caldwell.

Judy is the founder of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, BC/Yukon Region and spectators are encouraged to come out and support her leg of the relay by wearing pink.

Let’s show the world that a diagnosis of breast cancer hasn’t stopped Judy and thousands of other women from leading healthy, vital and active lives – and that with our continued support and effort, we CAN have a future without breast cancer.

Everyone is being asked to paint the town pink by wearing pink hats, scarves, feather boas, mittens, shirts and jackets. Organizers are asking that if you wear a pink shirt or hat please be sure there are no logos on it. I assume they will be filming this and they’d like to get as many people as possible in the shot (without corporate or non-Olympic branding I assume).

Judy will have a 300 meter segment February 12th at 7:50am from Denman and Davie over to the Inukshuk in English Bay.
