A couple of things to know:

Today's Party

Note that today’s after-party is at Shelter Cove Park (which is a different location than the start/finish line at Chaplin Park) so coordinate with anyone you’re walking/running with.

Facebook Challenge

Help us honor our #1 guy. Take a big smiley selfie with the Stevie cutout along the course and post it to our Chat Club using the tag #SmilesForStevie. There is nothing that made Stevie happier than seeing your smiling faces, and we just know that he’d be tickled pink to know he put a smile on 1500 faces!


We’re so grateful to our friends at Port Royal Plantation for hosting us this year and allowing 1500 crazy pink people to run through their community. But as a private gated neighborhood, it wouldn’t be cool for us to ask them to allow for passes to allow another couple of hundred cars in so we respectfully ask that you show your support from the public beach at Folly Beach (55 Starfish) and/or at the finish line in Chaplin.

Other Important Information

There are 343 parking spaces at Chaplin Park so do the math: we need EVERYONE either walking, riding their bike, and/or carpooling with 4+ people per vehicle to ensure room for the entire flock. We will have dozens of parking volunteers to direct you to the closest space available to the start line; please do not yell at them if you don’t like their answers. If you arrive at Chaplin after 7:30am, we anticipate that all spaces will already be full, and we will begin redirecting you to Driessen Beach Park (64 Bradley Beach Road) which is about a one mile walk to the start line. Just another reason to please carpool, bike ride, or Uber to Chaplin.
  1. Follow the music to the start line area on the main soccer field.
  2. Sign the Honor Board if you didn’t do it Thursday.
  3. Drop your bag at the Bag Drop. Bag drop will be set up under the pavilion in the main field near the start line.
  4. Please be at the start line before 8am. We cannot wait on you!
    – 7:00-7:45AM Music, dancing & games
    – 7:45-7:50 AM Group stretch/warm up
    – 7:50-8AM Welcome, announcements, reminders
    – 8AM START! Survivors will be in the front, leading the way!
The best locations to have friends/family cheering for you is at Folly Field Beach, located at 55 Starfish and, of course, at the finish line. There is ample parking at Folly Field, just make sure to pay the meter before heading down to the beach to cheer. There are restrooms and vending machines at the park.
Cheer on your posse to the finish line and then pack up your vehicle and head over to Shelter Cove Park to celebrate your first ten finished! Treat your tastebuds to a traditional Lowcountry Boil, relax with a cold beer or wine (only $4 at the bar tent), decorate your fundraising flamingo, or shake your tailfeathers to tunes from DJ Alan
Survivor celebration is at 12:30 today (in the big tent) and we encourage everyone to stay through this event. All survivors should be at Shelter Cove Park by 12:15pm. Please wear your survivor shirt and survivor swag, and bring your sign (if you like, you can leave all of this in bag drop while you walk).
Get your fingers ready to jump online and reserve your spot for Pledge The Pink 2022
Our Merchandise tent will be open from 9:30am-12:30pm during the After Party.
