The GMC’s Center for Cancer Care sees about 1,500 cases of cancer annually; about 400 of which are breast cancer cases. Some of these patients rely on access provided by GMC Foundation funding. In 2016, Paint Gwinnett Pink raised $105,000. Proceeds from the event offset costs for women who are unable to afford screening services, access to comfort items needed during cancer treatment and improve access to diagnostic technology.

Paint Gwinnett Pink will feature many activities at Coolray Field. There will be vendors, Corvette car show, tethered hot air balloon rides (weather permitting), silent auction and family fun. A survivor fashion show will be held following the walk/run. Post-race party with a force will include a concession with adult beverages and giveaways.
