Taste of Charlotte Pink Cupcake Walk & Breast Cancer Lap Saturday, October 1, 2022 ~ 10am
Pink Cupcake Walk Details
Taste of Charlotte’s Pink Cupcake Walk is back again this year! You’ll enjoy four mini cupcakes from local bakeries while walking laps around Truist Field, home of the Charlotte Knights baseball team. This year we’ve partnered with WBTV and Go Jen Go, a non profit that provides financial assistance to families in the greater Charlotte area who are battling breast cancer.
Everyone is invited: This is an inclusive event for the community. No matter what local breast cancer charities you like to support, we are inviting everyone into this central location to join in a celebration of Survivorship and help lift up those who fight.
The Pink Cupcake Walk starts at 10am, before the Taste of Charlotte festival opens, giving participants a peek inside before the general public arrives. Register, then grab your friends and join us at the baseball stadium in uptown for a fun walk/jog/eat around the Charlotte Knight’s baseball field.
As you pass home base after each lap, you’ll get a delicious cupcake! WBTV’s Molly Grantham will be there, as well as live music, and together we’ll cheer on breast cancer Survivors, Fighters, and Thrivers as they take their own personal lap following the Pink Cupcake Walk. It will be a morning of love, support, and FUN. We’ll also have a presentation after the Pink Cupcake Walk from Go Jen Go.
To register for one or both events, click HERE. Additional donations provide critical financial support to local breast cancer patients and provides you with Taste of Charlotte coins to use after the run! See the donate tab for more info. This year everyone is on #TeamMolly, so you’ll all receive updates and stories from WBTV’s Molly Grantham in addition to your Pink Cupcake t-shirt and mini cupcakes!
SURVIVORS: You will be asked when registering if you are a survivor. If you select yes, you will be asked to select number of years. You will also be able to choose the designated ‘survivor’ t-shirt we are creating just for you!
After the Pink Cupcake Walk, we will have a ceremony and call survivors down to walk a lap.
