The festivities will be held at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville and start at 8 a.m. with a 5K walk and run. Through the day, there will be a tailgate barbecue, a live DJ, helicopter tours, and a kids’ obstacle course. Local vendors will be on-site selling their wares and former professional football players will be signing autographs, according to the release.
The first event drew about 1,000 people, and 2017’s Paint Gwinnett Pink had 2,800 attendees. All proceeds will go toward improving access to diagnostic technology, offsetting costs for women who cannot afford screening services and providing “comfort items” to breast cancer patients during treatment, the release says.
