Welcome to our Inaugural “POWer in Pink” Superhero themed 5k walk/run presented by Jenn's Journey. This 5k is close to my heart for several reasons. As a Mom of two young boys who was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer in January 2018; I took refuge in my fitness journey by working out at my favorite place, Habitat Health and Fitness. Throughout my treatment of chemo, surgery, and radiation I continued my daily workouts and watched a community of people come together to support my FIGHT. Now it is my turn to give back. Therefore, I have created this 5K in hopes to raise money for a local breast cancer charity, Breast Cancer Foundation of Central Florida, who helps moms in need as well as create a sense of empowerment to all of those touched by breast cancer.
Please keep in mind this is the Inaugural event therefore this event will not be timed, though I encourage you to wear your smartwatches and keep your own time. My hope is that POWer in Pink will become an Annual Event in Winter Haven that will eventually be timed and continue to raise awareness while supporting a great cause.
“There is a SUPERHERO inside all of us. We just need the courage to put on the cape.”
