We're doing 33.1 miles this year!

Welcome to the Best Darn Weekend of Your Life

Together, we will run, walk, and crawl 33.1 miles in the search for the cure on beautiful Oak Island, NC.

Join us for our 4-day, cancer-kicking, bestie-bonding, bling-earning, beach-hopping adventure of a lifetime!

Come solo and meet 1499 of your new BFFs or gather your entire posse (men included) and make this a friends/family reunion that you’ll never forget.

Push a stroller, take a short cut, stop for drinks, and take loads of selfies along the way.

Pledge the Pink is not about beating the next guy. It’s about challenging yourself. And saving lives.

While you have the time of yours.

Included with your registration...

The fun doesn’t stop at the finish lines

We have shenanigans planned all weekend long! Join us for the…

…and all sorts of antics and hijinx after hours!

This is a jammed-pack four day weekend but you can do as much or as little as you want.

Ahoy, your adventure awaits!

Be part of our inaugural voyage to Oak Island where we will explore all 10 miles of her beaches, and meander along the waterways and boardwalks in search of treasure.

You’ll earn 3 big, beautiful medals and we’ll raise about $750,000. Shiver me timbers!

Oh, and we’re doing a pirate theme for our 2023 event in case you couldn’t tell!

Registration Ending Soon...

No fundraising required

We have found that we raise more money in the fight against breast cancer by simply not requiring fundraising.

Make a donation or create your own custom fundraising page if you want, but you’ll get absolutely no pressure from us.

Be part of history as Pledge the Pink reclaims the Guinness World Record!

The 1st Record
1,058 Flamingos

Our 2nd Record
3,753 Flamingos

Our 2023 Goal
7,500 Flamingos

Four ways to be a FlockStar

We have a wee obsession with flamingos, thanks in part to our lovely mascot we call Fancy. So it is only fitting that we refer to our amazing family of registrants and supporters as FlockStars.

The two closest airports are Myrtle Beach, SC (about 70 minutes) and Wilmington, NC (about 45 mins). Check routes and fares to both airports as they each boast different discount airlines in addition to Delta, American, etc.

Don’t forget to use our FlockStar Ride Share facebook group page to find rides and carpool to/from the airports!

X marks the spot, yall!

Oak Island is kind of like your childhood beach memories. Before high rise condos, before resorts, before towering hotels.

Oak Island has none of that. They do however have thousands of gorgeous beach houses available for us: choose one on the ocean or the intracoastal waterway or along the many creeks and marshy areas.

And from everything we’ve seen, you’ll discover noticeably cheaper prices than our previous locations, to boot.

Especially if you book through one of our accommodations sponsors:

Margaret Rudd & Associates, Inc.
Salt and Sandy Realty
Better Beach Rentals

For the first time ever, we’ve managed to put all three of our start/finish lines at the same location: Middleton Park. So you might want to find something close to there, but you’re never more than a 10 minute golf cart ride to all our activities no matter where you stay on this charming island.

You will get three delicious lunches off of the best food trucks in North Carolina with your registration. Breakfast and dinner is on you.
