Participants have the choice of a 1 mile fun walk or a 5k walk or run. 100% of the money raised during this event goes into the patient assistance fund and pays for things that insurance doesn't cover -- for breast cancer patients in our local community.

The event starts with introduction of committee, honorary chairperson and a high energy warm up. There is a brief memorial portion remembering those from our committee that did not win their battle with cancer of any type. This year we will also officially break the World's record for the World's Largest Ball made out of bras!

The event ends with the judging of the shirts. There are 5 different categories that participants can enter: Best Themed, Best Design by a Survivor, Judges Choice, Best Pink Ribbon Design and the wife or girlfriend decorates and the husband or boyfriend model.* most popular of the event! We try to begin the set up by the rented tents on Friday after 3 p.m. Begin set up day of race at 6 a.m. and we clear the park by 1 p.m.
