Palmetto Health Breast Center will observe their annual Walk For Life and Famously Hot Pink Half Marathon Oct. 14 at Spirit Communications Park.

According to Palmetto Health Breast Center’s website, breast cancer is the “most common cancer in women” and “ranks second among cancer deaths in women.” The site also reports that this year “an estimated 3,820 cases of female breast cancer will be diagnosed in South Carolina.”  

Kristi Evans, the center’s imaging manager, said this year they are fundraising for an additional 3D mammography unit.  Similar to many other organizations, Palmetto Health Baptist Breast Center hosts a Walk for Life each year to honor breast cancer survivors and remember those who have fallen because of breast cancer.

This is a time for families to reminisce about their loved ones, to celebrate a loved one’s victory, or to stand up for breast cancer research. Teams and families from across the state will gather to raise money for breast cancer research. Pink shirts, pink ribbons, pink hats, pink bandannas – a multitude of hot pink – will fill the park. The day will involve pictures, memories and stories of women and men who have been impacted by breast cancer.

In addition to the Walk for Life event, several partner events have formed that benefit the Walk For Life and Famously Hot Pink Half Marathon:

  • Cupcakes for a Cure (Oct 1-15)
  • Shop for a Cause Day (Oct. 13-14)
  • Isabel Law Research Breast Cancer Breakfast (Oct. 20)
  • Cardio For the Cure (Oct. 21)
  • 7th Annual Pink Dress and BowTie Social (Oct.28)

Additional details about these events can be found on Palmetto Health’s website.
