Frequently Asked Questions
 

Is the in-person event really on SATURDAY? Did I read that right?

Yes, your eyes have not deceived you! The in-person portion of the 2024 Pink & Teal Challenge will take place at Monroe Community College on SATURDAY, May 11th. We took a survey of our past participants, and the results indicated that people prefer the event being on Saturday.

Why are you offering a virtual walk and run?

The Breast Cancer Coalition never hesitated to offer a virtual option for the 2024 Pink & Teal Challenge. We recognize that there are several reasons our supporters may want to participate virtually: to avoid large gatherings, to complete their event on their own time schedule, to participate in their event at any geographic location, to support the Coalition even after having moved out of the area, and more!

Virtual participants may complete their event anytime between 5 pm on Friday, May 10th and midnight on Sunday, May 12th.
