Tidelands Health Foundation "In the Pink" Breast Cancer Awareness Walk Oct. 3

Make the morning of Oct. 3 a time of remembrance and celebration at Tidelands Health Foundation’s Annual "In the Pink" Breast Cancer Awareness Walk.

The two-mile walk, which draws more than 1,000 participants from the community, will begin at Waccamaw Medical Park East on Highway 17 Bypass and wind along the Marsh Walk at Murrells Inlet.

Events get underway at 8:30 a.m. with registration, music, a vendor expo and complimentary Shutterbooth photos. The walk will begin at 10 a.m. and will be preceded by a survivor celebration featuring a welcome by WPDE meteorologist Ed Piotrowski and inspirational words by physicians from Tidelands Coastal Carolina Breast Care Center.

A highlight this year will be the Butterflies of Hope. Participants can buy a foam
butterfly for $5 to honor, remember or celebrate a loved one and pin it to a “hope” board at the event. Participants’ names will be entered into a drawing for a 16-inch strand of 7.5 mm cultured pearl s donated by Diamond Collection of Georgetown.  

Registration is $25 through Sept. 4 and will increase to $30 after that date. Register online at For more details, call 843.652.8080. Proceeds from "In The Pink" will benefit the Tidelands Health Foundation Breast Care Fund, which helps underinsured and uninsured patients get mammograms.
