Color Me Pink run hosted for cancer awareness

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

October is breast cancer awareness month and Bluefield City Park was packed for the occasion for the Color Me Pink color run/walk.

The event was a free, non-competitive run put on by the Bluefield Regional Medical Center and Healthy Women to raise awareness for all cancers.

Despite the dreary weather Thursday had, over 100 people came out for the event.\

Healthy Women Coordinator, Sherri Cox said, “I wanted to make sure that people of every physical capacity would come so even if you feel like you can’t walk very far then that’s fine too. We just want you to be here. This is all about breast cancer awareness that’s the most important thing.”

A breast cancer awareness discussion took place immediately following the color run. Plus, door prizes were announced, and a final multi-color, color bomb to close out the evening.
