Channel the power of pink
The 14th annual Power of Pink 5K Run/Walk/Dog Walk will raise money for early breast cancer detection on Saturday, Sept. 25, at Frog Level in Waynesville.
The race and walk begin at 9 a.m., with the route following Sulphur Springs Road to Hazelwood Avenue before turning left on Elsynia Avenue and right on Sulphur Springs to return to Frog Level. It’s a flat and fast route with only 77 feet of elevation gain.
Music, refreshments and celebration with family and friends wait afterward, with theme baskets available for raffle. Wear your best pink, and don’t forget to dress your four-legged friends for the occasion.
Organized by the Haywood Healthcare Foundation, with proceeds supporting prevention and early detection of breast cancer. Since 2007, The Power of Pink event has funded 1,800 mammograms and follow-up procedures for 960 women and men in Haywood County.
Registration fee is $30 and $10 for dogs. Groups of five or more from a single organization can register for $20 each. Sign up at www.gloryhoundevents.com/event/power-of-pink.
