Benefits Placer Breast Cancer Foundation
All proceeds from the Hot Pink Fun Run will benefit the Placer Breast Cancer Foundation. The group is comprised of breast cancer survivors and community activists who are committed to raising money to fund new research, outreach and health education opportunities for the region.
The festive event will include a 10K, 5K and 1-mile walk/run. All races start and end at Civic Center Plaza on Vernon Street in Downtown Roseville.
Participants are encouraged to run/walk in the Hot Pink Fun Run in honor or memory of a friend or loved one who has been affected by breast cancer. Special customizable stickers will be available on race day.
Individuals can write the name of the person they will be walking in honor or memory of on a special sticker available for $1 at packet pick-up or registration on the morning of the race. There will also be an Honor/Memory wall for individuals to share the reason why they are participating.
The previous Hot Pink Fun Run event drew more than 1,000 participants, dozens of volunteers and raised more than $30,000 in funds for local breast cancer research.
“The Hot Pink Fun Run has become a wonderful community event. It’s a day of celebration where women, men and children not only participate, but often times honor a loved one or someone they know who has been impacted by breast cancer,” said Carol Garcia, a breast cancer survivor who co-founded The Placer Breast Cancer Foundation. “This is a family-friendly event that is fun and also helps educate people, giving them both the knowledge and awareness of breast cancer.”
