been down since its founder decided to stop sending funds to planned parenthood. that decision was later reversed by the organization believes the economy and competition from other charities could be factors in the decline as well. in the past, the susan g. komen thre three-day walk in the bay area has attracted thousands of people trying to end breast cancer and fund research. it's one of their biggest fund-raising tools. the walks generally held in about 14 cities canceled in seven. they include san francisco, washington, d.c., phoenix, boston, chicago, cleveland and tampa bay. apparently those cities not meet ing the fund-raising goals. this won't affect, though, the well-known race for the cure. if you're still interested, the one city in california where it will still be going on is san diego. reporting live in san francisco, christie smith, "today in the bay." >> christie, thanks a lot. >> where christie is reporting from, san francisco, plenty of

be big enough to hold them all. this is not a legal document they've submitted. apple isn't committed to hiring that many people. so, it could be the company giving a high estimate. you have to take it as a signal to investors. a lot of them are nervous about apple's future. they're saying, look, not only is it bright, it's gangbusters in a way they couldn't in an official, legal, financial filing. take this one perhaps with a grain of salt, but it is exciting news for the south bay one way or another. >> i guess you can't just build a bigger spaceship, huh? >> they could start now but it would delay it quite a bit, wouldn't it? >> yeah. thank you, scott. christina loren is here. youf been educating us about the low clouds keeping us cool. >> yeah. keeping us cool. typically, we talk about june gloom and it's something people complain about. much of the month of june can be

"today in the bay's" christie smith is live in san francisco with what's behind this sudden move. christie, good morning. >> good morning to you. the organization says this was a difficult decision to make. but that it's hard to sustain such a huge event in 14 cities with the participation levels that they're getting. so they're cutting it down to just seven cities. that is starting next year in 2014 for their signature three-day walk. what that means is that san francisco, washington, d.c., phoenix, boston, chicago, cleveland and tampa bay won't be participating next year. the susan g. komen for the cure fou foundation says one of its biggest fund-raising tools for breast cancer awareness and research is this three-day walk but also it's one of their most expensive to put on.
the seven cities apparently not meeting their fund-raising goals were picked. participation is down across the board as the found er decided t stop sending proceeds to planned parenthood. the walk will continue in seven other cities including san diego. this won't affect their popular race for the cure. again, everything is the same this year. this asks the event next year. reporting live in san francisco, christie smith, "today in the bay." >> thank you, christie. 6:46 right now. christina loren is back. we're always looking forward to the weekend. today looks like it might just be perfect. >> it is. like we were talking about before, seize the day. don't let it get past you. you might be kicking yourself tomorrow when temperatures climb by 10 degrees from where we're headed today. the reason for the cooler weather today is that marine layer.
