As we look to our 5th Annual POUNDING the PAVEMENT for PINK, our mantra is "GO BIG or GO HOME!" We reflect back on the incredible "growth explosion" we experienced last year. There were 2200 runners/walkers; an increase of over 1600 entrants over the past 3 years. Team formation was over the top. Last year, we had over 80 teams, formed by friends, family and coworkers. You could feel the electricity in the air! Excitement was everywhere!
To say that the 4th Annual POUNDING the PAVEMENT for PINK was a success is an understatement! This "explosive growth" in our 5K event is UNHEARD of in the "arena" of 5k races. The 5th Annual 5K is shaping up to go beyond the heights of last year's event. There are new teams already forming with last year's teams promising an even bigger turnout!
Of course we encourage individual participation as well.. Are you a serious runner? Will you beat the course record?Top Male finisher time: 17:15 and top Female finisher time: 19:57. Inadditon to trophies for the overall Male and Female finishers, there will be awards for the following:
1st, 2nd, 3rd Breast Cancer Survivor finishers

Seymour Pink is an active grass roots organization with many exciting community minded fundraising events ranging from an annual pasta dinner at Brookside Inn in Oxford, CT, to a 5K run/walk here in Seymour, to our annual wine tasting gala at the Inn at The Waterview in Monroe, CT to the day that started it all, a day in October we proclaim as "Seymour Pink" Day where we "SEE MORE PINK" to raise awareness about this life altering disease.
These amazing events are not only successful in raising funds to FIGHT breast cancer, but in bringing a community together in the FIGHT. The support for those victimized by this diagnosis is overwhelming.
Each event is an opportunity to lend support to those who battle this disease. Each event hosted by PINK or by individuals in the community, brings us closer to conquering this disease and putting cancer where it belongs: in our history books!
