Would-be first lady Ann Romney wore pink for the second time in a week today, as she marched the streets of Orlando, Florida, in the fight against breast cancer.
The wife of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who beat the disease after being diagnosed in 2008, joined a sea of pink t-shirts, pink hats and even pink bras for the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K walk.
Both Ms Romney and Michelle Obama chose the colour for their outfits at the second presidential debate, held at Hofstra University in New York state on Tuesday, as they attempt to sway America's women to vote for their husbands.

Today, Ms Romney donned a pink 'Team Romney' t-shirt and a breast-cancer awareness pin as she weaved through downtown Orlando for the annual fundraising event, which drew more than 40,000 participants.
Men, women, children and a few well-behaved pets showed up to support breast cancer awareness, and most were wearing pink, which is often associated with the battle against the disease.
Along the course, Ms Romney chatted to breast-cancer survivors, listening to their stories and posing for photographs.

The annual walk and other events fund breast-cancer research, and ensure more women have access to breast-cancer screening and treatments.
Mary Moyer, a breast cancer survivor from Clermont, was one of the dozens who posed for a picture with Ms Romney during the charity walk, after meeting in the 'Survivors Tent.'
She told the Sentinel she was planning to post it on Facebook. 'I'm just thrilled to death about it,' Ms Moyer said.
