North Myrtle Beach, SC. October 5th, 2019 – The BFF Pink Ribbon Run has been a great community event managed by volunteers of the Grand Strand Running Club for the past 6 years. Bringing awareness to a disease that affects so many friends and family members and raising money for local breast cancer non-profits has been a focus from the beginning and will continue to be with Coastal Race Productions taking over management. The all new BFF Pink Ribbon Run includes a 10K, 5K and a new 1 Mile Memorial walk/run for participants of all ages and fitness levels. With big fun medals and an all new 3 race challenge, participants have an opportunity to earn 4 medals in one morning while fundraising for a great cause! There will also be a new way to donate and memorialize a survivor or loved one who has past. A $20 donation will buy a yard sign to be placed on either “Survivor St.” or “Dedication Dr.” where all 3 courses pass at some point. All proceeds of this donation will go to local non-profits. Registration & Donations are online at: www.bffpinkribbonrun.com
We’re aiming to donate more to local breast cancer foundations than any other race in the Grand Strand area. 100% of your donation will be given directly to the 2 non-profits that benefit from this event: “21st Century Care” & “Caring In Our Lifetime”.
