Channel the power of pink
The 16th annual Power of Pink 5K Run/Walk/Dog Walk will raise money for early breast cancer detection on Saturday, Sept. 23, 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. An additional raffle will give away a one-of-a-kind quilt made up of 16 race shirts from the race’s history. All participants will receive a race shirt. Wear your best pink, and don’t forget to dress your four-legged friends for the occasion.
Organized by the Haywood Healthcare Foundation, the race raises money for prevention and early detection of breast cancer.
Registration fee is $35 for adults $15 for youth 17 and under, $25 for a 5K team and $30 for virtual participation. Hosted by Glory Hound Events. Sign up at gloryhoundevents.com/event/power-of-pink-5k.
