Mission, TX – Saturday, October 9th, the grounds at Mission Regional Medical Center will resemble a sea of pink.  That’s when thousands of people from across the Rio Grande Valley will meet on the south side of the hospital to take a stand against Breast Cancer and walk to save lives in the Twelfth Annual Mission Pink Walk/Run for Breast Cancer Awareness and treatment.

Last year in the midst of the pandemic, Mission Pink pressed on, holding a virtual 5K. The socially distanced format allowed participants to complete the 5K walk/run at a location of their choosing. This year, we are planning to hold an in-person event.

Mission Pink is not your average 5K. The proceeds benefit a very good cause—to provide Free Digital Screening Mammograms to uninsured women over the age of 45 who live in the Rio Grande Valley.

“I would like to cordially invite everyone in the community to take part at this life changing event. Let us show our support to every woman as we walk/run together in the fight against breast cancer. Together we can win!” says Kane Dawson, CEO, Mission Regional Medical Center.

An estimated one out of every eight women born today will be diagnosed with breast

cancer at some time in their lives, according to the National Cancer Institute.
