Join our 2020 Virtual Pounding the Pavement for Pink RACES!
In 2012, Seymour Tradition – a nonprofit organization in our town whose focus is on teaching young girls the values of sportsmanship teamwork and discipline, asked Seymour Pink, Inc. if we would co-host a 5K race. Seymour Pink was so excited about the offer to partner up with this fine organization. The 5K race POUNDING the Pavement for PINK was born! In our first year, both of these non-profit organizations realized a total of $24,000. These monies have helped both Seymour Pink and Seymour Tradition advance our missions.
Every year since we have co-hosted the Pounding the Pavement for Pink 5k, Thanks to the community’s support of this event , Seymour Pink has raised over $600,000 for breast cancer research!! We hope this COMMUNITY has any idea of the impact your support and donations will have on the men and women and their families victimized by this diagnosis ~ YOUR IMPACT is HUGE! THANK YOU!!!
In 2020 for our 9th Annual event, we are taking the race virtual due to the coronavirus pandemic and uncertainty in public health and safety concerns as the year progresses. While we were disappointed at first, we are excited as we are introducing a 10k run/walk to our event and the first ever PINK CHALLENGE, a combination of the 5k and 10k. Our event will take place virtually and safely – wherever you are – from October 1st to 4th 2020.
We encourage friends, family, and businesses to form a team. We have over 100 teams participating in years past and while this year poses challenges for being together in person, we KNOW that we can feel together in spirit and united in the FIGHT AGAINST BREAST CANCER!
Of course we encourage individual participation as well. Are you a serious runner? In addition to trophies for the overall Male and Female finishers for our 5k, 10k, and combined Pink Challenge times, there will be awards for the following:
We are SO excited to announce that for our 2020 races we are adding MEDALS and NECK GAITER for all race finishers in addition to the official 2020 Pounding the Pavement for Pink race T-SHIRT!
****Register by August 15, 2020 to be guaranteed your medal and by August 31st to be guaranteed your t-shirt and face mask. We will make every effort to provide swag to registrants but cannot guarantee after the order cutoff dates shown here.
Seymour Pink is an active grass roots organization with many exciting community minded fundraising events ranging from an annual pasta dinner, to a 5K run/walk here in Seymour, to our annual wine tasting gala at the Inn at The Waterview in Monroe, CT to the day that started it all, a day in October we proclaim as “Seymour Pink” Day where we “SEE MORE PINK” to raise awareness about this life altering disease. These amazing events are not only successful in raising funds to FIGHT breast cancer, but in bringing a community together in the FIGHT. The support for those victimized by this diagnosis is overwhelming.
Each event is an opportunity to lend support to those who battle this disease. Each event hosted by PINK or by individuals in the community, brings us closer to conquering this disease and putting cancer where it belongs: in our history books! Please visit our website http://seymourpink.com or visit our Facebook page for more information about our events and contact us today to join in this community’s FIGHT against breast cancer as we “SEE MORE PINK” and raise awareness one event at a time.
