Are You Man Enough?

Dress in Pink for Your Race Against Breast Cancer

Join the 2012 annual Men In Pink 5k run/walk, an event for men brave enough to pull on their pink tutus — and whatever other bubble-gum shade they can drape their bodies in — and hit the city streets in support of local education, screening and research efforts.

Organized by Benefit Health System's Men In Pink support group, this 5k walk/run event brings the entire community front and center by creating an unmatched entertainment value in the form of men running around in some of the silliest pink outfits they can find.
