Pippa Mann continues her work with Susan G. Komen next month in the Komen Central Indiana Affiliate Race for the Cure.
In the upcoming April 18 event, she’ll serve as Team Captain of the Pippa’s Pink Posse team. It’s a 3.1 mile event and the day will also include opening ceremonies, the annual Pink Parade of breast cancer survivors, a 5K timed competitive run, a 5K non-competitive run/walk, a one-mile family walk, Kids’ Dash and In Color Station.
This will be her first Race for the Cure; the Central Indiana Race is one of many held nationwide in order to raise funds for Susan G. Komen.
Funds raised at the event will go to support local and national breast cancer research, as well as life-saving services for underinsured and uninsured women in the Central Indiana community.
“Together, we can team up to pack a bigger punch, and make an even bigger impact in this fight, so I’m asking anyone who’s interested to jump on board – if you’re walking with Pippa’s Pink Posse this April, you’ll be walking alongside me,” Mann said. “It’s so important for people to come out and support this amazing event – after all, it’s so much more than just a race.”
Mann joked she’ll probably be walking though, given a long-time dislike of running.
Hashtags for the event include #MoreThanARaceIN #PippasPinkPosse #ProudToBePink, and more information can be found linked here from the event website.
Mann’s relationship with Komen began ahead of last year’s Indianapolis 500, when a partnership was formed and featured prominently on her pink No. 63 Dale Coyne Racing entry in the race.
