  • The registration fee DOES NOT include T-shirt unless you are a survivor or living with metastatic cancer. If you raise $100 or more, you will receive a T-shirt. If you raise $100, are a survivor or are living with metastatic cancer, you can pick up your T-shirt at the Komen office (dates TBD). The office is at 8707 West Center Road.
  • All registered participants will receive an opening ceremony gift on event day.
  • The More Than Pink Walk WILL NOT have a run element. The focus is on making the event a walk – which reflects the vast majority of participants historically – to create a greater sense of community among participants and to provide a more personalized, emotional experience for all who attend.
  • There will be no bibs.
