Next, Butterfly Teams and participants set off on their 5K route, donning their colorful wings, lots of groovy glowing BLING and smiles for miles while enjoing the chill vibe and gorgeous Florida sunset along the river route.  Walkers will follow runners for their 1 mile-ish walk (or whatever makes you happy) time on the Riverwalk!  The 5K turn is at Curtis Hixon park where participants will be cheered for the last hurrah back to the finish line!

Awards immediately after at GLoW Party and awards ceremony will follow immediately with lots of BLING and awesome music to dance the night away until midnight!

 Message from the Founder...

“My Hope Chest’s unique mission is a call to ‘ACTION’ honoring breast cancer Survivors focused on breast restoration, a little known aspect of the disease in need of much support.” said My Hope Chest Founder, Alisa Savoretti.  We are excited for even more Tampa Bay businesses, groups and individuals to join our crusade this year to help ‘finish’ for women what breast cancer had started. We are looking forward to an even larger turnout of folks at our 3rd annual event and party, raising funds and supporting our mission of ‘HAPPY’ and new beginnings for survivors! 

TELL YOUR FRIENDS and Rally your Team Early~ This is a Family Friendly event!”
