Hot Pink Fun Run

Annual Event returns to Benefit Placer Breast Cancer Foundation

Roseville, Calif. – The Placer Breast Cancer Foundation’s annual Hot Pink Fun Run in 2024 is set for Sunday, September 29, 2024 as they fight breast cancer by raising money to fund research, outreach, and education. Bubbles & Brews are back this year! Donโ€™t miss the after-race pancakes, bacon, and beer or mimosa!

The Placer Breast Cancer Foundation hosts the annual Hot Pink Fun Run, a family-friendly fun run/walk held in Downtown Roseville.

“This is a family-friendly event that is fun and also helps educate people, giving them both the knowledge and awareness of breast cancer.”

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.

“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.”
