GREENVILLE — The Breast Cancer Awareness 5K run/walk event will take place on Saturday, July 30, 2022, at the Annie Oakley Memorial Park located at the intersection of South Broadway, Martin Street and Washington Avenue in downtown Greenville. The kids run will begin at 8 a.m. and the 5K begins promptly at 8:30 a.m.
The primary purpose of Breast Cancer Awareness of Darke County (BCADC) is to raise funds for women who need assistance with their fight against breast cancer.
Breast Cancer Awareness of Darke County is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides education, awareness, prevention and screenings for women’s health.
This annual event is a great opportunity to raise public awareness of breast cancer while offering support and information about local resources 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.
The race committee is excited to have several “Pink Mile Men” participate and help with the annual event. The Pink Mile Men are local volunteers who represent various community organizations and businesses, raise funds and lead a walk down Broadway. The walk will start at approximately 9:30 a.m. following the 5K run/walk event. To guarantee a shirt, race registration forms must be received by July 16. Early registration is $25 and race day registration is $30. Early registration for the kids run with shirt is $25 and $5 with no shirt.
Race packet pick up will be available for pre-registered participants on Friday, July 29 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Gospel Baptist Church Recreational Building (115 West 5th Street, Greenville, OH) Race day pick up will begin at 6:30 a.m. until 8 a.m. at the same location.
