Walk for Life and Famously Hot Pink Half Marathon—28 years of innovation, enhancements and inspiration

Thanks to the support of donors, more than $8.5 million has been raised for Palmetto Health Breast Center!

The 2017 Walk for Life/Race for Life was held Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017, at Spirit Communications Park with more than 6,000 walkers and runners. Proceeds from the event, nearly 750,000, including in-kind donations, stay right here in the community and benefit Palmetto Health Breast Center. In 1991, the first-ever “First Ladies’ Walk for Life,” was held Saturday, Oct. 12 with 200 walkers.
