This is a great way to support the Power of Pink as either an individual or part of a group.

The Power of Pink is an event of the Haywood Health Care Foundation.  Visit them at www.HaywoodHealthCareFoundation.org



Thank you to everyone who supported the 12th Power of Pink 5K at our new home in the Frog Level section of Waynesville.  We are grateful for the support from our record number of participants, our sponsors, and volunteers as we continue to help the underserved women and men of Haywood County. Results are below.

Groups of 5+ are encouraged and will receive a discount of $20 per person.  The groups must register under one “team name”.  The group leader should register first, pick the team name and then group members may register under the same team name.  There is no limit to the total amount of members per team.


The new course in Frog Level will take runners from the start in front of Panacea and Frog Level Brewing on a lollipop shaped course along Sulphur Springs Road.  While the old course in Clyde was hilly, this new course is super flat with only 77 feet of elevation gain along the course.
