Pink Cupcake Walk: Breast cancer survivors, thrivers and fighters celebrated at Truist Field
Proceeds will help local people battling metastatic breast cancer.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - The third annual Pink Cupcake Walk kicked off Saturday morning at Truist Park, celebrating breast cancer survivors, thrivers and fighters.
Participants walked four 1/4-mile laps and for every lap walked, received a delicious cupcake from four local bakeries. The laps were meant for all ages and Speed for Need was on-site with their chariots to help people going through treatment.
Afterward, there was a presentation focused on breast cancer survivors, thrivers and fighters (fighters being those going through metastatic breast cancer).
The event ended with the Survivor, Thriver and Fighter Lap.
WBTV started the event in 2021 as a way to team up with a local charity helping people in the Charlotte community -- Go Jen Go, in this case.
They provide financial support with housing, utility bills, transportation, groceries and other necessities for those battling breast cancer. Now, Go Jen Go donates about $20,000 to 70 local families.
Proceeds from the Pink Cupcake Walk will help Go Jen Go! continue to help local families battling breast cancer. This year, more than $50,000 was raised.
