Taste of Charlotte's Pink Cupcake Walk & Survivor Lap is back again this year at Truist Field!  You'll enjoy mini cupcakes from four bakeries while walking laps around Truist Field, home of the Charlotte Knights baseball team.  We've partnered with WBTV and Go Jen Go, a non profit that provides financial assistance to families in the greater Charlotte area who are battling breast cancer.  

This is an inclusive event for the community. No matter what local breast cancer charities you like to support, we are inviting everyone into this central location to join in a celebration of Survivorship and help lift up those who fight.  Please note that you can choose a Survivor t-shirt when you choose your size.  

The Pink Cupcake Run/Walk starts at 10am, before the Taste of Charlotte festival opens, giving participants a peek inside before the general public arrives.  Register, then grab your friends and join us at the baseball stadium in uptown for a fun 1 mile walk around the Charlotte Knight's baseball field.  

As you pass home base after each lap, you’ll get a delicious cupcake! WBTV’s Molly Grantham will be there, as well as live music - and together we’ll cheer on breast cancer Survivors, Fighters, and Thrivers as they take their own personal lap following the Pink Cupcake Walk. It will be a morning of love, support, and FUN. We’ll also have a presentation after the Pink Cupcake Walk from Go Jen Go and live music all morning from StellaRising.

Participants of the Pink Cupcake Walk will receive: the 2022 Pink Cupcake t-shirt, four mini cupcakes and the #TeamMolly email from Molly Grantham with updates on breast cancer survivors, thrivers and fighters in our community!

Thank you to our four local bakeries who are returning for a second year:  Dulce Affairs, Kupkake Kouture, Dream Cupcakes and Sunshine's Southern Kitchen

To register click the sign-up tab.  This year all registered participants are automatically on #TeamMolly.  You can still choose a social team if you and your friends or co-workers want to be on a team of your own!  

A portion of your registration fee goes to Go Jen Go but additional donations provide critical financial support to local breast cancer patients and at $50 or above, you receive Taste of Charlotte coins to use after the run!  See the donate tab for more info.   

* Be sure to use #PinkCupcakeCLT when you post pics!

Dogs & Strollers
Please note that you may bring a stroller BUT you will need to carry it down the steps from the concourse to the field.  There is not an available ramp.
We love dogs but this year we can not have pets at the event nor on the field for the walk.  Please plan to leave your furry friends at home.
