Each year, hundreds of participants dress in their best pink attire and participate in the Come Walk With Me 5k in Sumner to show their support for breast cancer fighters and survivors.

The fundraiser begins and ends at the Old Cannery Furniture Warehouse.

In addition to the 5k, the Woodcreek Pediatrics Kids 50 Yard Dash begins at 8:30 a.m. at the corner of Traffic and Main Streets. Children under the age of 10 will receive a commemorative souvenir. Parents are encouraged to bring a stroller so the little ones can rest during the longer walk.

Participants will enjoy vendor booths, a silent auction and pink pancake breakfast sponsored by Diagnostic Imaging Northwest. Contests include a PINK’d Award to the most outrageous pink costume and a Bedazzled Bra Contest with a $250 Victoria’s Secret gift card for the winner. Captain Jack’s is sponsoring a 21 and older Drink Pink After Party with drink specials and musical entertainment. Goldfish races will be held at about 2 p.m. at the bar.

Funds raised during the event will benefit the local community by supplementing breast health programs and education at Multicare Good Samaritan Hospital. For example, “Her Piece of Mind” is a program that provides mammograms for women lacking adequate health insurance coverage.

Entry fees vary from $10 to $30 based on age group and registration method. Register online at www.multicare.org/home/come-walk-with-me or in person the day of at 7:30 a.m. The 5k walk begins at 9 a.m. and activities will continue throughout the day. Those who choose to help raise money for the cause are offered incentive prizes. For more information, please visit the Come Walk With Me website. Personal donations can be made online or mailed to:
