The Foundation for Marshall Medical Centers is excited to present the 9th Annual Pink Pumpkin Run/Walk - PINK OUT EDITION to benefit mammography and cancer services at Marshall Medical Centers.

For almost a decade now, the Pink Pumpkin Run has been Marshall County's premier running event featuring a 5K, 10K, 1 Mile Fun Run, early registration and packet pick up, music, children's activities and the popular Pink Pancake Brunch.  The race will take place on Saturday, October 27th, 2018 starting and ending at the Guntersville Civitan Park across from Guntersville Middle School. You don't have to run, just participate for a good cause! 

This year, get ready for a PINK OUT! For the first time ever, race shirts will be ALL PINK and everyone can take "thinking pink" to the next level.  Let's get merry in magenta, bold in blush, fun in fuchsia, and ready to run in rose!  Deck yourself out from head to toe and we'll all be PERFECT IN PINK for the 9th Annual PINK Pumpkin Run!

Why We Run

The proceeds from the Pink Pumpkin events will be donated to cancer care service programs at Marshall Medical Centers. The main beneficiary of the Pink Pumpkin proceeds will be the Mammography Assistance Program (MAP) at Marshall Medical Centers North and South. Through the funds provided from MAP, women who cannot afford a yearly mammogram are offered assistance. Often the concern over the loss of income because of the time away from work or the lack of transportation or gas money prevent women from having this potentially life-saving test performed on an annual basis. Through MAP we have the ability to overcome these obstacles for many women. We also run in honor and memory of loved ones who have fought the battle with cancer.

Course Descriptions

5K Course (USATF certified - AL11049JD): The 5K walk/run will begin at Guntersville's Civitan Park, travel northeast along Sunset Drive/LB Wallace Drive and return to the Civitan Park by way of newly renovated downtown Guntersville. The course is mostly flat with a couple of slight inclines and runs adjacent to beautiful Lake Guntersville. Aid stations will be located at the halfway point.

10K Course (USATF CERTIFIED - AL12066JD):  The 10K course will start at the Guntersville Rec Center and travel northeast along Sunset Drive/LB Wallace Drive and return to the Civitan Park by way of Gunter and Blount Avenues. The 10K course runs through Downtown Guntersville, featuring the Whole Backstage Theater, the Guntersville Museum and the Guntersville Library. The 10K course is mostly flat with a few inclines. A water and aid station will be located at the Chamber of Commerce, Bancorp South and at the finish line. All 10K runners will need to pick up their bib numbers at the Civitan Park prior to the race.

The 1 Mile Fun Run will begin at the 5K start, run to LB Wallace Drive and back. It is not timed, but the first three male and female finishers will receive an award.  Rehydration & snacks will be available before and after the races. Afterward, participants can enjoy the popular Pink Pancake Brunch - a crowd favorite! Medical support will also be available on site during the event.

Fundraising Information

Sign up as a fundraiser in the Pink Pumpkin Run 2018 Challenge!

Each year hundreds of women are able to receive free mammogram screenings through the Mammography Assistance Program because of people like you. Likewise, local cancer patients are given the care they deserve at the Marshall Cancer Care Center to make it through a tough diagnosis.  With your help, we can make a BIG difference in the lives of women and cancer patients in our community.

We'll provide you with tools to build your own webpage, send emails, set fundraising goals, collect donations and acknowledge your supporters. Collecting donations for this cause is fun and easy. Simply send an email to your family, friends and co-workers, post a link to your fundraising page via social media or host a mini-fundraiser with your team to make a difference. (Who doesn't love a good bake sale?)

ALL THE MONEY YOU RAISE WILL PROVIDE SUPPORT TO LOCAL CANCER PATIENTS!  Get started today by creating your pledge page!
