The fundraising 5K (optional timing component) promotes breast health awareness, celebrates survivors, encourages breast cancer patients and honors those we have lost. Join us for a special survivor breakfast. Visit the “Pink It Up” tent for a fun way to enhance your pink side before the Race begins. All money raised from pink item sales will benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure® MS Affiliate. How well can you “Pink It Up”? The best “Pinked Up” person will be recognized at the event, receive a prize and maintain bragging rights!
With breast cancer affecting one in eight women and its occurrence in men continuing to rise, the event will create awareness and educate the public about Susan G. Komen® and its role in the fight against breast cancer. Proceeds benefit the Mississippi Steel Magnolias Affiliate of Susan G. Komen®, in which up to 75 percent of the net income stays in Mississippi to fund breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment projects. A minimum of 25 percent of net income from events supports the Komen for the Cure Award and Research Grant Programs, which fund groundbreaking breast cancer research, meritorious awards and educational and scientific conferences around the world.
