Racers kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month

KALISPELL, Mont. – More than 1,600 racers braved the rain, hail and cold temperatures for The Fifth Annual Pink Me Up race in Kalispell to support survivors and remember those lost.

“Cancer runs in my family and my aunt died from cancer and we figured we’d be out in beautiful Montana enjoying the rain and stuff!” said racer Kimberly Carpenter.

The event brings together people of many different backgrounds for a variety of reasons.
