Get Ready to Pledge the Pink, Fripp Island!
Thursday through Sunday, October 15-18, 2020
Who We Are
Pledge the Pink is the second largest multi-day breast cancer event in the country and we are celebrating our 10th anniversary this year.
Our 30-mile island-hopping adventure of a lifetime has raised almost a million dollars in the fight against breast cancer and our fundraising goal for 2020 is to raise $500,000, the majority of which will stay in the lowcountry to provide funding for screening, treatment, and research. Our Foundation is a 501c3. Oh, and we have a mild obsession with flamingos.
What We Do
What To Expect at Fripp:
Friday: We will set up our start line at the foot of the bridge and our registrants will walk/run over the bridge from Spring Tide Market, and then head down the trails and beaches of Hunting Island. The bridge will be closed from 7:55am until 8:15am. We will be back at the Beach Club for our after-party and other hijinks until 10pm. We would love for yall to come out and join the fun!
Sunday we will start our Fripp race at 7:15am at the Beach Club and wind all over the island (see map below). We hope that you’ll cheer our participants on with decorations and “party” stops all along the way. The finish line is back at the Beach Club and our after-party will go on until 3pm. Please join us!
