Kids Fun Run
9:00 am (multiple starts)
Open to children 12 years old and younger. The Kids Fun Run is a sprint down the hill on Francis Street (across from Providence Place Mall). Awards for the top finishers are awarded at the Flames of Hope Run/Walk Series Awards Ceremony.
This year’s Fun Run we will be divided by age groups:
5-6, 7-8, 9-10, and 11-12.
This new format allows us to recognize all of our sprinters-big and small, AND it gives us the excuse to award more prizes!
Pink Pump Palooza
10:00 am (multiple starts)
A fifty-yard dash that is open to men and women. Be the first to cross the finish line in style, wearing your festively decorated high heels, and you may be crowned Ms. or Mr. Pink Pump Palooza!
In an effort to ensure safety for this growing crowd favorite, we will have 3 starts to keep our dashers from, well - running into one another. The top female and male finishers from the three races will compete in a final run to be crowned Ms. and Mr. Pink Pump Palooza.
Gloria Gemma 5K Run/Walk
This sanctioned course is open to competitive athletes and the not-so-competitive walkers/runners. Come ready to race or stroll your way through historic downtown Providence wearing your "pink spirit" driven garb. Great prizes will be awarded for the fastest times and highest fundraisers!
The Flames of Hope Run/Walk Series is the Foundation's largest fundraiser. All monies raised remain in our local community, and are used to provide programs and services for people living with breast cancer.
