Registration is NOW OPEN!
Click here to register.
The 15th Annual Pink Ribbon Run is presented by Oakridge Realtors and GreenState Credit Union.
Cancer is expensive. A lot of times there are costs that add up outside of what insurance covers, and non-medical costs as well. Your help is appreciated!
In 2021 we are celebrating our 15th YEAR!
You will have the option to participate in person on October 2 or virtually as an individual or with a team, or you can skip the walk and just raise funds. Either way, we appreciate you!
Thanks to our Survivor Sponsor, Community Auto Group, all breast cancer survivors still receive FREE registration.
Pink Ribbon Running is more fun with friends! Gather your favorite people and support the Beyond Pink TEAM at the 15th Annual Pink Ribbon Run. Teams of 10 or more members will have a designated place to gather for pre-race fun! Make it even more fun, and raise money as a team to present to the Beyond Pink TEAM!
Honor or celebrate your favorite breast cancer survivor with a Tribute Sign. The $30 signs must be ordered by September 15 to be ready for the Pink Ribbon Run, and will be placed along the Pink Ribbon Walkway near Gateway Park.
This year you can order your favorite Pink Ribbon Run or Beyond Pink TEAM swag. From stocking hats to water bottles, from coffee mugs to long sleeve shirts, make sure you order early to get your favorite logo'ed item to support the Beyond Pink TEAM.
All orders must be placed by Sept 5 to be ready by October 2.
The pandemic taught us that we can pivot and still be successful. For the first time we offered shipping of race materials before the race. We will continue to offer the shipping of race materials at $7.50 per participant. Swag items can also be shipped for an additional cost.
CDC guidance is that outdoor events are safe, especially for vaccinated individuals. We will be completely outdoors for this event, mask wearing optional. However, if you do not feel comfortable attending, we encourage you to still support the Beyond Pink TEAM by participating virtually and sending us a picture of your race! If COVID levels are still high at the time of packet pick up, masks will be required to pick up your T-shirt. This will be communicated the week before prior to packet pick up.
We could not do what we do, without the support of our sponsors. Sponsors cover all the expenses of the Pink Ribbon Run, so that your registration dollars go directly back to the community. Please support our sponsors, and when you do, thank them for supporting people living with breast cancer in our community.
The Pink Ribbon Run was started in memory of Michelle Friedley, who died way too young of breast cancer in 2004.
In 2006, the first Pink Ribbon Run
was held in her honor.
"Michelle wanted to help women who needed financial and emotional support.
She has left a legacy of giving that she would not have been able to leave, had she not gone through cancer. She had a trademark smile and I am sure that smile is blanketing every single
Pink Ribbon Runner!"
- Pam Dowie, founding committee member of the Pink Ribbon Run
