Pink It Out 2020

You Can’t Go Out, But You Can Pink it Out!

The 2020 Race for the Cure scheduled for May 2nd has been canceled but Susan G. Komen Greater Detroit knows that breast cancer doesn’t take a break…and neither do we!

For 25 years over 20,000 people have gathered in downtown Detroit to celebrate, remember, educate and raise awareness about early detection of breast cancer and the importance of research. So that the spirit of the race lives on during this time of social distancing and sheltering at home, we are announcing a series of Facebook activities to take place during the month of May. Your participation will help us keep our mission alive and raise much-needed funds to continue supporting the communities we serve. So even if you can’t go out, you can still “Pink it Out”!

See all contest rules and detailed information about the weekly activities below.
