VINCE CARTER’S FIFTH ANNUAL PINK WALK/RUN A SUCCESS!
Over 200 enthusiastic participants registered for the fifth annual Vince Carter’s Pink Walk/Run on Saturday, October 3, 2015. Hosted by Vince Carter’s Restaurant and the Embassy of Hope Foundation, the walk/run kicked off at 9:30 a.m. The dedicated walkers, runners, and bicyclists came together to show how a community can help make life better for everyone, get a little exercise, and have fun. Proceeds from this event will go to area hospitals to assist women who cannot afford mammograms.
Vince Carter’s, a community minded restaurant, is owned by Memphis Grizzlies star, Vince Carter, and his mother, Dr. Michelle Carter-Scott. Since they have lost family, friends, and even a former teammate of Vince’s to cancer, they agree that “whatever can be done to help with early detection and a hope for a cure must be tried.”
This year’s event raised a little over $11,000 to be put back into our community.
We extend our deepest gratitude to our sponsors and ask that you help us thank them by patronizing their businesses, where appropriate.
