A popular race that benefits a very important cause. Information from the race organizers:
The Haywood Regional Medical Center Foundation, in partnership with the Haywood County Health Department and Medwest Haywood, are raising funds for breast cancer detection and providing mammograms for underserved women in Haywood County.

The Power of Pink is two events in one. Our signature race has been redesigned into a friendlier 5K that includes both individual and team categories. Prior to the 5K will be a 1-mile Honor/Memory/Survivor Walk.
The new 5K course begins and ends in front of the MedWest-Haywood Health & Fitness Center. The course goes behind MedWest-Haywood Hospital before following Jones Cove Road through a beautiful cove and then returning along Hospital Road.
The Honor/Memory/Survivor Walk starts and finishes behind the Fitness Center and takes place entirely on the hospital campus.
