The Woodlands Runs for a Cause in The Pink 5K
The Pink 5K took place at Rob Fleming Park in The Woodlands on Saturday, May 13 for its fourth consecutive year to benefit The Breast Cancer Charities of America.
Presented by Terramont Orthodontics, the participants arrived sporting their official Pink 5K hot pink shirts, tutus, and fun costumes to raise awareness for breast cancer and funds during Mother’s Day weekend. Supporters could register individually or as a team for the family friendly fun run and walk to benefit The Breast Cancer Charities of America’s programs. Strollers and dogs were welcome as the community showed their support and joined in on the fun – plus to honor the women in their lives.
The race began at 8:30 am, participants excitedly ran and walked together from start to finish, family and friends cheered from the sidelines with bright and colorful signs, and each participant received a customized medal at the finish line.
