Pink Squad - A Fun Race Course Experience!

Take part in the fun, exciting atmosphere that happens along the Race for the Cure route! This year's Race route goes through more of the city - wrapping through the Medical District - up to Five Points South and the Southside - and down through UAB's campus before ending back at Regions Field.

Members of the Pink Squad cheer on all of the Race for the Cure participants along the race course. Whether they be walking or running, you'll be spreading some cheer and getting them excited!! Members of the Pink Squad will be out on the Race course during the event - participation in Pink Squad is separate from Race for the Cure registration. Race registration is required for entry into Regions Field.

For $10, each registered Pink Squad member will receive: one official Pink Squad t-shirt and one spirit sign - provided by our partners, Academy Sports + Outdoors - to decorate and a copy of the latest I Am Komen chants.

Pink Squad t-shirts and spirit signs must be picked up from the Komen North Central Alabama office in Homewood between Monday, Sept. 25th and Wednesday, Oct. 4th. There will not be onsite pick-up the morning of the Race.
