Tigerlily Foundation’s 2nd Annual Pink Boa 5k Run/Walk

The Pink Boa 5k Sunday, September 15, the Tigerlily Foundation will host its second annual Pink Boa 5k Run/Walk. The Tigerlily Foundation was started by a young woman who, after surviving breast cancer, wanted to start a breast cancer charity that focused solely on young women. This foundation sets itself apart from others by being one of the only nationwide organizations that provides groceries, meals, financial assistance, buddies and educational services to young women affected by breast cancer. The Tigerlily Foundation also differentiates itself by being 100 percent service-oriented and focusing on empowering and teaching young women about lifestyle choices and prevention.

The Pink Boa 5k Run/Walk is a fun way to bring the community and everyone affected by this disease together. This is a great way to get out and exercise while raising money to fight cancer. There are many different options for sponsoring this race, which is always a great idea for businesses! All proceeds will go to the Tigerlily Foundation.
