The opposite of addiction is not sobriety. The opposite of addiction is connection."
— Johann Hari

A race to support an end to the Opioid Epidemic. 

The Painted Pinky 5k is named in honor of a beloved member of the Canandaigua community who was known for her unique nail art and love for running. Her friends and family have created this memorial event to raise funds and awareness to fight and end the Opioid crisis in not only our community, but our country. By joining us for a morning of community connection your donation will support The Partnership for Ontario Country programs as well as Canandaigua Track Boosters Club. Both organizations strive to connect the community and provide a positive outlet for all community members.
