Special Events-Breast Cancer Walk

Dear TPFH Family,

please join our TP Field Hockey team on November 4th again for our 7th year of supporting the San Diego Affiliate of Susan G. Komen in its efforts to find a cure and end breast cancer. In each of the past years, a group of TP Field Hockey players  have participated in the Susan G. Komen San Diego Race for the Cure 5K/1 mile walk with their friends and family. This year the race is on Sunday morning, November 4th at Balboa Park at 8 am.

Last year we had a great time supporting this cause with our field hockey team and family members. Two years ago we even made the morning and evening TV news.

Please join our team, the “Torrey Pinks High School”, for a 5 k walk by registering using the following link now:


(Go the REGISTER and then JOIN A TEAM, our team name is “Torrey Pinks High School”)

Registration fee is $ 40 for adults, $35 for youth.

We did not set a fundraising goal, but any donation is very much appreciated – so please give what you can, this can be a great group effort.

We are looking to go out there as a team to show our support for finding a cure to a disease that touches so many of us: our friends, our mothers, our sisters.

Remember, one person can make a difference. Susan G. Komen was founded by one sister making a promise to another sister.You can be part of this worthwhile effort.

We look forward to seeing you support this cause on race day! We’ve planned lots of pink goodies for the girls to get all decorated out for the run. Girls are welcome to make posters at their team dinners this month, which can be taped to field hockey sticks and carried on the walk. On the morning of the event, we will meet in the Torrey Pines parking lot, where we usually have bagels, fruit and drinks and then caravan to the event. More information will be provided as we get closer to the walk/run.

Please let us know if you have any questions:
