St. Mary’s Medical Center Foundation and Cabell Huntington Hospital Foundation are excited to team up again for our second annual Colors for a Cure! Colors for a Cure is a 5K Walk/Run that begins at Pullman Square in downtown Huntington. It combines the efforts of many teams from the Tri-State area, including many cancer survivors.
Colors for a Cure encourages participants to wear colors representing all types of cancer. Proceeds from the event will benefit cancer patients in need at both St. Mary’s Medical Center and Cabell Huntington Hospital, as well as the Paul Ambrose Trail for Health (PATH).
Colors for a Cure also gets everyone to join together, creating community by forming teams and tailgating during the event. Awards are given away to the teams in various categories, such as Largest Team and Most Thoughtful Team.
100 percent of the money raised by C4C stays in the Tri-State area. We hope you will join us in supporting our united fight against cancer by participating in this unique event.

The majority of the proceeds from the event will go to the St. Mary’s Breast Center Pink Ribbon Fund, which provides free mammograms to local, uninsured and underinsured women in the Tri-State. A portion of the proceeds will also be donated to the development of the Paul Ambrose Trail for Health (PATH), a bicycle and pedestrian trail system for the city of Huntington. We hope you will sponsor our efforts to support good health and a strong sense of community.
“Never underestimate the power of friends and family during your healing process.“ - Terri Wentz, 25 Year Cancer Survivor

Tailgating will be along 3rd Avenue. We feel that tailgating brings a special flavor of community as people join together to chat, laugh, eat, and have fun. Important details: There is no charge for tailgate spots. TAILGATING SPOTS ARE ASSIGNED ON A FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED BASIS FOR TEAMS. Tailgating setup is between 11 AM and 12:30 PM on Sunday, October 22. C4C provides nothing for the tailgate spot other than the designated space itself.
