Pink it to the Limit

Pink It to the Limit
March 4-5, 2023

Pink It to the Limit is the team of walkers & runners of all ages & abilities who participate in events to raise money for Neuroblastoma research with Emily's Power for a Cure. Since 2007, our team members have raised over $1,000,000 in donations for our organization! The money we raise goes toward finding a cure for Neuroblastoma and supporting families whose children are battling this disease. 

   Pink It to the Limit with Us !       
There are options for all ages & fitness levels, and we will be with you every step of the way. Whether this is your 1st event or your 100th, you'll be ready on race day. We're not about being first to the finish line or crushing records. We just want to crush childhood cancer, and we can do that together with your help!

Step 2: join OUR pink it to the limit team

Why should you join us?

We will get you ready for race day, no matter where you are on your fitness journey.  Our team members will have access to personalized coaching, will be invited to optional group training meetups, will get lots of cool swag, and will receive a weekly newsletter full of helpful information & tips for success. More importantly, you'll be supporting a worthy cause, and you'll have lots of pink angels cheering you on from above!

What do we ask of you?

We want our team members to be cheerleaders for our organization. Please tell your friends and family about Emily's Power for a Cure, and let them know why you've decided to join our team. Each Pink It to the Limit team member will have a minimal fundraising commitment, and this will be used to support our mission to "EmPower Families, Fund Research, and Fight Neuroblastoma." Adults will have a fundraising goal $250, kids/teens will have a goal of $100, and families will have a goal of $500. We will help you set up your personal fundraising page and provide you with all the tools you need to meet and beat your goals!

Let's do this!
