Mark Your Calendars for October 1!
We are excited to announce the date for our 5th Annual Pink Pumpkin Patch 5K Fun Run for breast cancer awareness-Saturday, October 1, 2016.
The annual family-friendly event begins at 8:30 a.m. (registration at 7:15 a.m.) on the hospital’s campus with a 5k Fun Run and a 1 Mile Fun Run through the city of Lucedale.
The Pink Pumpkin Patch is free and open to the community. Children can have their photos taken in the pumpkin patch. The event also features face painting, refreshments, and great door prizes (including drawings for free mammograms, gift baskets, and more!).
Last year, we were able to give $6,000 to The Pink Heart Funds (Long Beach) which provides wigs for those undergoing chemo and Pink Ribbon Fund (Hattiesburg) which helps with doctor bills and transportation. Each of these organizations has helped local George County residents. Both of these organizations are 100% volunteer supported and all money donated is 100% given back!
Also this year, we will be donating $3 for every entry to the St. Jude fund in honor of Carlie Herrington, a 12 year old George County resident currently undergoing cancer treatments.
The 5k Fun Walk/Run is $20 and includes a commemorative T-shirt.
