    Pretty In Pink Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization which serves North Carolinians diagnosed with breast cancer who are under-insured or uninsured. When breast cancer is present and medical insurance is not enough, care can be delayed or simply not received because of cost barriers. Once diagnosed with breast cancer, often times individuals are choosing between breast cancer treatment and quality of life needs like shelter and food.

    We hope this is just the first annual .5k fundraiser in Johnston County – get in a year of training and be ready to support a great cause!
