Pledge the Pink

What Is Pledge the Pink? 

pledge-the-pink-start line

In 2011, Pledge the Pink was founded to fight cancer in South Carolina and motivate people to get in shape. Since then, the three-day, 30-mile race has become a beloved Lowcountry tradition and donated more than one million dollars to breast cancer charities. Each autumn, nearly 1,500 participants from across the globe gather in South Carolina’s beautiful Lowcountry to walk and run thirty miles over three days.  

Where Is it Held?  

Pledge the Pink has been hosted in various locations across South Carolina’s beautiful Lowcountry including, Fripp Island, Hilton Head Island, Daufuskie Island, and Callawasie Island. In 2021, Pledge the Pink will be held nearby on Hilton Head Island, SC.  

Fripp Island hopes to host Pledge the Pink again soon! In 2019, Fripp was at the center of the three-day event, and we had a blast supporting the cause and the fabulous “Flockstars!” 

When Is Pledge the Pink?  

  • 2021 Dates: October 14th to October 17th  
  • 2022 Dates: October 20th to October 23rd 

How Can I Get Involved?

Here are a few ways you can join the fight against breast cancer with Pledge the Pink:  

Of course, local communities also tend to get involved in the festivities, and we aim to replicate that here on Fripp Island. Lowcountry homeowners decorate their yards during each event and gather to cheer for and encourage walkers as they pass by.  

So, if you’re looking to take part in this year’s Pledge the Pink event, head to the Lowcountry and spend some time encouraging the “Flockstars” by volunteering, donating, or sponsoring the event.
