The Pink Ribbon 5K Run/Walk is sponsored by Sisters by Choice (SBC) and is a USATF Certified Course. The first 100 people to cross the finish line will receive a medal!
SBC is a breast cancer organization who is committed to addressing the disparities surrounding breast cancer. The Pink Ribbon 5K Run/Walk is held annually at Piedmont Park.
This 5K Run/Walk was started in 2005 and has grown tremendously over the years. All proceeds from the race go towards the operational costs of Sisters by Choice’s Mobile Breast Clinic. The breast clinic travels throughout the state of Georgia to help medically underserved men and women gain access to quality breast care.
Sisters By Choice (SBC) was founded in 1989 by Dr. Rogsbert F. Phillips-Reed, a prominent Atlanta-based breast surgeon, SBC has evolved into a multi-faceted organization providing services for the uninsured and underserved women.
SBC provides over 1000 free mammograms and breast exams to uninsured, unemployed, and homeless women each year as well as providing free educational seminars, workshops, and health fairs to promote breast cancer awareness.

Sisters by Choice puts the safety of its participants, spectators, staff, and volunteers first. Dangerous weather conditions pose a unique challenge to an event therefore we have adopted the following Inclement Weather Policy:
Rain - The event will NOT be cancelled due to rain alone unless the downpour is such that athletes, police, and volunteers lose visibility or there is a threat of flash flooding, making situations unsafe. If this occurs we will wait until the rain subsides and follow the same procedure listed for lightning conditions (minus the 30 minute rule). Participants will be informed of such a change via announcements on race morning. Information will also be available on our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter pages, and also by email.
Lightning – In the event of lightning the race will be postponed by 30 minutes every time lightning is spotted and thunder is heard within 6 miles of the event. Please note that every time lightning strikes and thunder is heard within 6 miles of any part of the race course, we must restart the timing of 30 minutes increments.
Tornado Warning – If at anytime before (race morning close to start time) or during the event, a tornado warning is issued, the race will be cancelled.
On Course Cancellation – If the race is canceled due to storms (lightning and/or excessive rain) or tornado warnings while it is in progress we will do everything in our power to alert everyone on the course. Race officials will immediately communicate with police, who will immediately begin doing all they can to warn participants and direct them to safety. We will do everything in our power to assist those who are still on course. If you see lightening during the race, you should seek immediate shelter via open stores, buildings, garages, homes and/or any other means of protection from the dangerous conditions. If it gets bad and we are not there to help you off the course please do everything you can to keep yourself safe and take shelter. Again, if you are told by a race official or police officer to reroute and take shelter during the race, know that the race has been officially cancelled.
Because of agreements with the City of Atlanta, Atlanta Police Department, and Emergency Response Personnel regarding a fixed amount of time to have roads in use or the time commitment of public safety or law enforcement officials, Sisters by Choice, at any time, reserves the right to shorten the distance of any of its races to comply, especially in dealing with inclement weather conditions that may make any course unavailable or unsuitable for runner participation. We have the safety of our participants, volunteers, police and medical personnel as our top priority.
Please be aware that if weather conditions prevent race staff and volunteers from completing set up in a timely manner, the race could also be delayed for these reasons.
If the need for a cancellation arises, please be reminded that there will be no refunds of registration fees.
