Recap of our 2020 event: This was our fifth annual Paint Gwinnett Pink 5K Walk/Run for Breast Cancer. Due to COVID-19, our 2020 event went virtual! Virtual participation began with your registration and continued up through our "virtual finals" on Saturday, October 24, 2020.
How did this event work? Through your videos and photos, you showcased your participation or your team's participation, whether running or walking or sitting at home, which was then shared on our social media channel.
And winning couldn't have been easier! During our "virtual finals" our race coordinators pulled names from our Participants Drum and presented awards by gender and age category.
Money raised from the event celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness month will benefit local cancer survivors and the Northside Gwinnett and Northside Duluth Breast Centers.
In a time when we are all looking for Heroes, each of us can be a hero by supporting Paint Gwinnett Pink.
What is Paint Gwinnett Pink?
This is more than just a walk - whether real or virtual.
Northside Hospital Gwinnett hosts the Paint Gwinnett Pink 5K Walk/Run every October. The event is the largest 5K supporting breast cancer in Gwinnett County. It is a celebration of survivorship, while raising awareness and funds for breast cancer programs at Northside Hospital Gwinnett.
Don't miss this opportunity to make a positive difference in the fight against breast cancer!
