The third annual Pour le Pink, a 3.1 mile Walk/Run to support local breast health and women’s services, will be held on Saturday, Oct. 5 at Highlands-Cashiers Hospital (HCH). The funds raised will go toward maintaining the hospital’s spectrum of breast health and women’s services.
“Last year’s Pour le Pink was a great benefit for our local communities. It raised nearly $13,000 and helped build a lasting fund for women’s services enabling us to stay up to date with critical services, equipment and provide our patients the best quality care possible,” said race organizer Callie Calloway, Communications Specialist at HCH. “We are hoping for the same success this year.”
The race will start on the campus of HCH, travel to Buck Creek Road, down Cheney Lane, looping back to the hospital campus for the finish. Event goers are invited to participate as runners, walkers and individuals or teams. Prizes will be awarded to the top three places female/ male runners/walkers in each age group.
Sponsorship opportunities from $100 to $1,000 are available. Registration for Pour le Pink is under way and available on Active. com. Entry fee is $30. The 5k race is open to male/female runners and walkers of all ages and will begin at 9 a.m. More information is available online at www.highlandscashiershospital.org or contact Callie Calloway at (828) 526-1313.
