Back in 2013 a small group of breast cancer survivors, many of whom were diagnosed through mammography, were discussing ways to make sure that all women had access to these health services without worrying about the cost. That conversation was the start of the Party in Pink 5K. The first year we kept asking ourselves, do we know what we are doing? Actually, wedidn't! If you were there, you might recall that we were timing racers with volunteers who had stopwatches! We were hoping for 100 racers; we had over 400!
We could never have anticipated the support that Vinton and the surrounding communities showed us. And the support has continued to today as we prepare for the 10th anniversary run. We do know a littlemore than we did then! We have chip-timing. We have a kid's race, a 1 mile walk, a 5k, and this year in honor of our 10th anniversary, a 10K.
We hope you can join us in continuing to support the Gifts of Hope program that offers financial support for diagnostics and treatment to Bentoncounty residents.
