Why does the Breast Cancer Family Foundation hold the Pink Pumpkin 5K Run/Walk? 

  • Mission. Your participation supports our mission to “Inspire people in our community to lead cancer-free healthy lifestyles”…a nice 5K run or walk on a Saturday morning gets the body moving!
  • Education.  Funds raised from entry fees, raffle tickets and our supportive business sponsors fund our cancer awareness and prevention community education programs for high school students and adults in the community…start early in life making good food and lifestyle choices and it’s never too late to do so!
  • Honoring the Fight.  All of us have been touched by cancer in some way…great place to get together with others in the community and recognize cancer survivors and those lost to cancer.

What is there to do before the Pink Pumpkin 5K Run/Walk begins? From 8-9:45 a.m. enjoy…

  •  Have Fun! Music, refreshments, face painting, pink hair extensions, and group photos in the photo booth.
  • Pile on the Pink! Be recognized as the “Best Dressed,” and be featured on our website. Wear your pink hats, sequins, feather boas, ruffle skirts…you know what to do!
  • Special survivor group photo. Survivors of any type of cancer receive a small gift from us and are asked to gather at the Pumpkin Patch at 9:15 a.m. for a 9:30 a.m. photo session.
  • Raffle tickets! Purchase drop raffle tickets and win awesome prizes…really, they are awesome!
  • Pumpkin Patch. Honor those touched by cancer.  Wear pink and purchase a real, painted “Pink Pumpkin” for $15 in honor of memory of someone you care about.  Names will be written on pumpkins and placed along the route or in our Pink Pumpkin Patch.  Pumpkins will be collected and available for you to take home at the end of the event.  Pre-order your pink painted pumpkin on the registration form.
