It is with great consideration that we are converting Pink Pumpkin Walk/run into a virtual race. With the continuing recommendations for social distancing, this decision was made to protect participants, volunteers, staff members and our overall community.
Our choice to convert to a virtual walk/run may bring with it many questions, but first we would like to explain why this decision has been made. In unprecedented times like these, the best cure for fear and the unknown is the hope that comes with community. We believe our event continuing in a virtual fashion will allow you to connect with other participants in powerful ways. Our goal is to create something that you can still look forward to and participate in, while adhering to recommendations for social distancing.
Two walk/runs (communities) coming together for one great cause.
Please join in the celebration of cancer survivors, warriors, supporters and friends this October in our Virtual Pink Pumpkin Walk/Run event! The world may look a little different right now, but one thing hasn’t changed: our commitment to preventing cancer! This year Pink Pumpkin Walk/Run is everywhere – in every community, every neighborhood and every treadmill.
The health and safety of our participants and volunteers are our top priorities. This year’s event won’t be a large in-person gathering – instead, we are inviting our participants to walk in small teams of friends and family while others in our communities are doing the same. Because we’re all walking and fundraising for the same thing: a world without cancer!
A virtual walk/run gives you the option to run or walk on your own time, with your friends and family members. You can form a team in honor of or in support of a cancer patient, survivor, or in memory of someone who passed away from cancer.
We walk together to stand with those going through a diagnosis or treatment of breast cancer, to honor those who have fought breast cancer and won and to remember those we lost too soon. One hundred percent of funds raised from Pink Pumpkin Walk/Run benefit Beat Cancer Family Foundation’s P.A.C.E. (Prevention and Cancer Education) programs in our local schools. The life-saving presentation educate students, women and men about cancer prevention, early detection, risk factors, myths and healthy lifestyle choices.
Remember, with a virtual event you can recruit walkers from anywhere, and, as always, 100 percent of the funds you raise stays local and goes directly to cancer prevention education. Beat Cancer Family Foundation is the only provider of school-based educational programs on cancer in Northeast and Central Wisconsin. Students learn healthy habits (nutrition, exercise, detection, etc.) they can adopt now to help reduce their risk of developing cancer later in life.
