Palm Coast - It's time to go pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Registration is open for the annual Pink Army 5K run/walk and One Mile Pet-Friendly Fun Walk.
The event raises money for breast cancer awareness, education and screening. One-hundred percent of the proceeds raised by the Pink Army 5K go toward financially supporting mammograms, breast ultrasounds, stereotactic breast biopsies, education and other specific diagnostic services to aid in the early detection of breast cancer.
