Sunday, October 2nd, Flames of Hope weekend will end with the largest Gloria Gemma fundraising event of the year, the Flames of Hope Run/Walk Series. All funds raised remain in our local community, and are used to provide programs and services for people touched by breast cancer.
The day begins with the Kids Fun Run at 9am. The Kids Fun Run is a sprint down the hill on Francis Street (across from Providence Place Mall). Awards for the top finishers divided by age are awarded at the Flames of Hope Run/Walk Series Awards Ceremony.
Next, is the Pink Pump Palooza at 10 am. This fifty-yard dash is open to all men and women of all ages! 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!
Last but not least, the Gloria Gemma 5K Run/Walk at 11am. This race is open to competitive athletes and the not-so-competitive walkers. 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!
