Join Paint The Parkway Pink To Raise Money For Breast Cancer Research October 20
Women In Medicine And Law For The Cure® will host the “Paint the Parkway Pink” event, a Stone Oak Community activity aimed to raise funds for breast cancer research. Featuring a 5K Run, 1 Mile Family Walk/Run & Kids Fun Run & free health fair.
The event will be held at North Central Baptist Hospital, 520 Madison Oak Drive, Stone Oak, San Antonio, Texas 78258-3912. Olympic All-Around Champion Vladimir Artemov and other local celebrities will award top finishing participants with medals for age groups. Entry into the race includes your donation to Women In Medicine And Law For The Cure® research and participants will receive a race T-shirt as well as awards for top finishers. Children participating in the race will receive ribbons and balloons.
North Central Baptist Hospital will be sponsoring a Post-Race Health Fair for family fun and information from health conscious businesses. Kids’ activities will be provided, including face painting and stretching activities that will be fun for the entire family. Four-legged friends and strollers are invited to participate and refreshment stations will be provided.
“We are excited to add the first annual “Paint the Parkway Pink” event to the fundraising efforts of Women In Medicine And Law,” said Dr. Jean Holt, founding member of Women In Medicine And Law. “It is a wonderful opportunity to promote healthy lifestyles and community engagement, while allowing for 100% of net proceeds to be donated strictly for breast cancer research.”
In its ninth year, Women In Medicine And Law For the Cure®, comprised of women in these two noble professions and their friends, work to support and raise money to find a cure for breast cancer. Through events like Paint the Parkway Pink, and their annual fundraising dinner, this organization has cumulatively donated over $1,058,000 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure® in the form of a restricted grant for medical research—in other words TO FIND A CURE!
The race would not be possible without the support and efforts of its founding sponsors Alamo TotSports, North Central Baptist Hospital, Baptist Breast Center, Go Guide, Go Live, and Sonterra Ophthalmology. Other local sponsors include Betsy Dippo State Farm, NFit Woman, Enchanted Rock, Rebecca Creek, and Stone Oak Info. For information on sponsorships and vendor space, please contact: sponsor@
