2019 Komen Ocean City More Than Pink Walk
The Susan G. Komen More Than Pink Walk is bringing its new name and a fresh look to Ocean City this April! On Saturday, April 13, the breast cancer walk will begin at 9am following the Survivor Parade (8:20am) and Opening Ceremonies on the Boardwalk at the Inlet Parking Lot.
New and Improved
Komen Maryland was selected to be one of 26 locations nationwide to launch this newly energized More Than Pink event. The new approach is focused on bringing energy to the community through Komen’s lifesaving work that every single supporter has made possible.
“These changes are intended to increase people’s connection to our work beyond breast cancer awareness,” said Michael Jessup, Komen Maryland Executive Director. “Together, we are more than pink–a community of people who want to do more for research, more for our communities, more for those among us who are living with breast cancer–including metastatic breast cancer–and more action to get us to cures.”
The biggest shift in this year’s breast cancer awareness event is the elimination of the timed run. Now, as a walk, the emphasis is on mass participation rather than a timed race. Their goal is to create a more personalized and emotional experience for those attending.
Registration is $20/adult, $10/child. Pets are strongly discouraged from the walk, but strollers are permitted.
All survivors will receive a complimentary t-shirt and surprise gift to use in the opening ceremonies. All general participants will receive a surprise gift to use in the open ceremonies but must fundraise $100 to receive a t-shirt.
