Registration is now open for the 2021 Northside Hospital Paint Gwinnett Pink 5K Walk/Run for Breast Cancer. The event will be held in person Saturday, Oct. 23, at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville, Georgia.
Now in its sixth year, Paint Gwinnett Pink is held during Breast Cancer Awareness Month and supports breast cancer programs at Northside Hospital Gwinnett and Northside Hospital Duluth. Money raised provides improved access to:
- Cutting-edge imaging technology for earlier diagnosis.
- Transportation and other assistance needed for cancer treatments.
The 2021 event theme of “Seeing Beyond” was chosen to celebrate and highlight the fundraising goal to secure new 3D mammography technology at the two hospitals. These advanced digital breast tomosynthesis machines will help doctors achieve success in early detection of breast cancer.
“We are thrilled to be joining together once again to celebrate and support the breast cancer community,” said Jennifer Griffin, oncology physician liaison and co-founder of Paint Gwinnett Pink.
“This year’s event will be one that we will never forget,” says Stephanie Hunt, Paint Gwinnett Pink 2021 chair. “It is time to gather together once again and celebrate all that Paint Gwinnett Pink means to our community.”
Registration for the 2021 Paint Gwinnett Pink 5K Walk/Run is $35 and includes a long-sleeved T-shirt. Awards will be given for overall and age group winners.
Participants will enjoy socially distanced festivities on race day. Should the in-person 5K need to be canceled, all 5K registrations will transition to a virtual run, and registrants will pick up their race packet and information at packet pick-up.
