Palm Coast - There's still time to sign up for this Sunday's 7th annual Pink 5K run/walk and pet-friendly One-Mile Fun Walk, where you can "pink out your pup!"
The Pink 5K chip-timed race is hosted by Florida Hospital Flagler in partnership with the City of Palm Coast and the Florida Hospital Flagler Foundation, and it is being presented by the Flagler/Palm Coast News-Tribune. Proceeds from the race assist qualified patients in our community, helping to pay for mammograms, breast ultrasounds, stereotactic breast biopsies, education and other specific diagnostic services to aid in the early detection of breast cancer.
The Pink 5K will start at 7:45 a.m. Sunday at Florida Hospital Flagler, 60 Memorial Medical Parkway, Palm Coast, and run towards Royal Palms Parkway and back. The non-timed One-Mile "Pink Out Your Pup" Fun Walk will begin at 8:30 a.m. There will also be a Kids Fun Run.
Awards will be given to overall first-place male and female winners, as well as first-, second- and third-place runners in 17 age groups. One team will also be recognized for the most enthusiasm and participation. The awards ceremony will follow the 5K race.
