Update…

Jamestown (CSi)  With donations still coming in, the 11th Annual Running of the Pink, held on June 2nd came in with a record breaking 710 event registrants.

Tara Kapp from R.M. Stoudt says the  Running of the Pink Committee members have always made it a goal to top previous years’ numbers little by little so this year they had hoped to hit 600.  2017 saw 567 registrants and 2016 with 589 (which was the record to beat).

Tara says “We are incredibly humbled by the outpouring of support, especially on such a cold and windy day!”

Online race results are available at www.onlineraceresults.com and the direct link to the event results can be found on both the ROP and RM Stoudt Facebook pages.

Donations are still coming in but to-date, donations, sponsorships and registrations have topped $19,850.  A final total will be announced at a later date.

The proceeds raised go toward the Women’s Way program for breast and cervical cancer screenings for women who are under insured, or have no insurance coverage.

For more information contact Jamestown Regional Medical Center, or Central Valley Health District in Jamestown.

The event was recorded by CSi 10 The Replay Channel with the showing dates to be announced.

Tara Kapp, RM Stoudt BDC coordinator, says, “Casey Stoudt, Doug Klaudt and Jason Holstad were the masterminds behind the run, which began with 60 participants. This event has not only grown in size, but also in importance to the community. The run is something held near and dear to our employees’ hearts, especially this year. We lost our teammate and dear friend, Barb Gefroh, to breast cancer on New Year’s Eve. We’ve always known how vital the battle against cancer is and this year, we’re fighting even harder in Barb’s name.”

Proceeds help pay for new technology in women’s health. The money also helps individuals who could not otherwise afford mammograms and cervical cancer screenings.

Jamestown Regional Medical Center hosts No Excuses every year, in conjunction with Central Valley Health. That day, women can receive a basic screening as well as their mammogram, all in one quick visit. If women have any financial barriers, proceeds from Running of the Pink cover those needs. In 2017 alone, No Excuses helped more than 20 women. This year, because of popular demand, JRMC and Central Valley Health scheduled a summer No Excuses June 11-12.

About one-third of Stutsman County women over age 40 reported said they had not had a mammogram in the last two years, according to the North Dakota Department of Health.

“This is troubling because if caught early, the treatment options for breast cancer are so much better,” said Lisa Jackson, Jamestown Regional Medical Center Foundation director. “This is the difference between a small surgery to remove a lump, or a large surgery to remove the full breast.”

Last year, over 550 registrants and dozens of volunteers raised $17,500 for ROP.

Tara adds that “Casey Stoudt pays the bill for all event costs so that all donations can stay local and go directly to the cause.”

Running of the Pink is both competitive and noncompetitive and offers a 5K run, walk and 10K run.  After May 19, entry fees are $25 adults and $20 students and seniors. Registration includes a Running of the Pink T-shirt.

In addition to the run, there will be two sets of corn-hole boards auctioned off to raise additional funds. The corn-hole boards will feature the 11th Annual Running of the Pink logo.
