Another Big Year for HOT PINK


Another year and another Hot Pink Fun Run under my belt! 
For this fifth annual run, we introduced a number of changes—a 10K event, a new route and a new day of the week. It was the biggest and most successful to date, with over 1,550 runners through three different events (10K, 5K and 1-mile) and $29,100 raised for the Placer Breast Cancer Endowment. We received such positive feedback from so many people on this year’s run. It has been a pleasure to be involved for the last four years and to have co-chaired it for the last two.
What many don’t realize is that the Hot Pink Fun Run is planned, organized and ran by volunteers—blood, sweat and tears go into putting on the best run we can, because the cause is personally important to us. Neither my co-chair, Anne Chacon, nor I thought we could pull off such a huge event. But the event went off without a hitch, thanks to our small but very dedicated committee! (Not to mention our supportive husbands that did a lot of the heavy lifting!) It is really amazing to see how the community has made this event what it is today. Five years ago, we had 300 runners and raised about $10,000. Today, we have increased our runners by 500% and raised a total of $96,000! I am proud to be a part of this success and hope to see it continue to grow into the future.
