Participants also stopped by the expo area to nominate someone for the annual Bright Starts Pink Power Mom(TM) contest. This contest selects eight women who have survived breast cancer and used their experience to make a difference in the lives of others who are also affected by the disease. Each Bright Starts Pink Power Mom(TM) will receive a prize package which includes a $5,000 donation to the charity of her choice. Nominations will also be accepted online at www.pinkpowermom.com through June and winners will be announced at the end of August.

In addition to conducting the annual Bright Starts Pink Power Mom(TM) contest, Bright Starts also contributes a portion of the proceeds from the sale of its popular Pretty in Pink Collection to breast cancer research. These toys and baby gear were created to help give baby girls a brighter tomorrow with every purchase. Items include the Bounce-A-Bout(TM) Activity Center, Cradling Bouncer, Swing Anywhere(TM) Portable Swing and the Tummy Cruiser(TM) Prop & Play Mat among others.

"This year we really wanted to do something a little more special around the Komen Atlanta Race for the Cure event," said Kids II Vice President of Marketing Miles Bohannan. "We feel strongly that we have accomplished that with our sponsorship of the Kids Korral. It's a perfect way for our company to make a meaningful contribution to this incredibly important fundraising event in Atlanta. We applaud Komen Atlanta's dedication to finding a cure and proudly support this year's Race for the Cure."

The Komen Atlanta Race for the Cure is Georgia's largest and most successful education and fundraising event for breast cancer.
