About Pledge The Pink

In 2011, Pledge The Pink was a small, local charity race aimed at fighting cancer in South Carolina and getting the lowcountry in shape. Since that time, this event has grown into an ambitius, not-so-small breast cancer event. Through this event, Pledge The Pink has not only gotten 15,000+ off the couch each year but it has donated over 1 Million dollars to charities all across the country!

Through the Pledge The Pink Foundation (formally known as Carolina Cups), these every important funds provide gap funding for heroic, budget-restricted, nonprofit service providers.
