MPTC Great Pink Pumpkin Run Walk Saturday
Moraine Park Technical College will host its fourth annual Great Pink Pumpkin 5K Run/Walk at its Fond du Lac campus Saturday morning. The event raises money for women recovering from Breast Cancer. Moraine Park Director of Marketing and Communications Patty Lehn says a lot of student groups get involved in the fun. Child Development students will have fun activities for the kids, Cosmetology students will be doing pink hair extensions for children, and the Culinary Art students will prepare some desserts. Each participant will also receive a pink pumpkin. Money raised during the event helps make it possible to send women battling breast cancer to the “Infinite Boundaries Wellness Retreat.” It is too late to register online, but if you wish to participate registration at the event will be from 8 to 9:30 a.m. with the run/walk beginning at 10 a.m. The cost is $25 for adults and $15 for kids.
