Breast Cancer Awareness 5K Run/Walk

(Greenville) July 1 - The Breast Cancer Awareness 5K run/walk, which is part of the Darke County Wellness Challenge, will take place on Saturday, July 29, 2017 at the Annie Oakley statue in downtown Greenville. The kids run will begin at 8:00 a.m. with the 5K run/walk following at 8:30 a.m.

We are excited to bring back the “Pink Mile”, a 1-mile walk led by men representing various community organizations and businesses. The walk will start at approximately 9:30am following the 5K run/walk event.

The event is a great opportunity to raise public awareness of breast cancer while offering support for men and women who have been diagnosed with cancer. The race proceeds benefit individuals in the Darke County community who need mammograms, ultrasounds, wigs, prosthesis, lymphedema services and other supplies to help aid in their treatment and care.

To guarantee a custom tech shirt, race registration forms must be received by July 15th. Early registration is $25 and race day registration is $30. Early registration for the kids run with tech shirt is $12 and $5 with no shirt. Awards and post race activities will take place at Dave Knapp Ford at approximately 11:30 a.m.

All registered participants over the age of 18 will be eligible to win a free car from Dave Knapp Ford. The car is a 2004 Audi A4 Sedan. Participants must be present to win.

Race packet pick up will be available for pre-registered participants on Friday, July 29th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at First Congregational Christian Church Recreational Center. Race day pick up will begin at 6:30 a.m. at the same location.
