By on October 5, 2017

The Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation will host the 14th Annual Positively Pink 5K on Saturday, Oct. 7, in Avon.

Registration will begin at 9 a.m. in front of Sun Realty in Avon at 41838 N.C. 12. The 5K run/walk (3.1 miles) through Kinnakeet Shores will begin at 10 a.m.

Registration is $30 for adults and $20 for children 12 and under and is available online at www.runsignup.com or at the event on the morning of Oct. 7.


HICF encourages all ages to come walk, run or just join in the fun and festivities in support of our  neighbors on Hatteras Island who are battling cancer.  Participants are encouraged to wear pink in support of October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  A prize will go to the most “pinked out” adult and child participant. Awards will also be presented to the top three male and female finishers and the top three finishers in each age group.

The Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation is a non-profit, all-volunteer group. All proceeds go to help Hatteras Island residents battling cancer pay for treatment that is not covered by insurance and for transportation to and from treatment.
