As we look to our 3rd Annual POUNDING the PAVEMENT for PINK, we reflect back on the incredible "growth explosion" we experienced last year. There were 1500 runners/walkers; an increase of over 900 entrants in just ONE year! Team formation was over the top. Last year, we had 49 teams, formed by friends, family and coworkers. You could feel the electricity in the air! Excitement was everywhere!
To say that the 2nd Annual POUNDING the PAVEMENT for PINK was a success is an understatement! This "explosive growth" in our 5K event is UNHEARD of in the "arena" of 5k races. The 3rd Annual 5K is shaping up to go beyond the heights of last year's event. There are new teams already forming with last year's teams promisng an even bigger turnout! Of course we encourage individual participation as well.. Are you a serious runner? Will you beat the course record? Come join us on October 4th and bring your best! This is the 5K you won't want to miss...It is a race for HOPE!

Seymour Pink is an active grass roots organization with many exciting community minded fundraising events ranging from an annual pasta dinner at Brookside Inn in Oxford, CT, to a 5K run/walk here in Seymour, to our annual wine tasting gala at the Inn at VIlla Bianca 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!
