Pink is Just a Color Breast Cancer Walk 1st Annual 5k and 1.5 mile fun run/ walk
Sports Center of Morehead and Brittany Kelley presents the 1st annual 5k run and 1.5 mile Breast Cancer fun and fun run/walk in the heart of Morehead City on Sunday, October 22, 2023, at 3pm.
All proceeds will go directly to breast cancer patients within the community to provide them with items to make their journey a little more comfortable. These items include, but are not limited to special shirts designed for easy access ports for chemotherapy or pouches and shirts for post-mastectomy patients.
For those of you who may not know her, Brittany is the Mom of 3 boys, wife, and active member of the community. On June 20th, 2023 Brittany was diagnosed with triple Negative Stage 3 invasive ductal carcinoma. Without hesitating she has taken the battle of cancer head on and is on her way to kick its butt! She is presently in the process of going through 24 weeks of chemo to shrink the cancer, which will be followed by a double mastectomy and radiation to fully rid of it. At this time, she has already identified some needs that the community has around breast cancer care. With that, all proceeds from this event will be used to support local breast cancer patients by purchasing attire that makes their lives easier. When going through chemotherapy, or surgery, it's helpful to have clothing that has zippers for the port holes, drain pockets, and drain tube holes. With your help, Brittany plans to purchase and donate these items to make the diagnosis and process of breast cancer treatment a little more comfortable for our local community.
This first annual event will be a rewarding and fun afternoon race for breast cancer thrivers, survivors, caregivers, family, supporters, and local runners. All our welcome!!
