Celebrating the Strength and Courage of Women Fighting Cancer

April 26, 2025

In collaboration with Pardee Hospital Foundation and Hunter Subaru, we are thrilled to present the She Slays 5K. This event is all about celebrating the strength, courage, and fierce determination of women fighting cancer. Whether you walk or run, you're making a difference for those who are in the midst of this battle. This event aims to empower people to take charge of their health and well-being, while also raising funds for Hendersonville women who are fighting cancer.

While this event supports women with cancer, everyone is welcome to register to participate!

let's Show Them Some Love

She Slays was created to celebrate the strength and resilience of women battling cancer. By participating, you become a beacon of hope, a symbol of solidarity, and a source of inspiration for those facing their toughest battles.

Proceeds from this event will support local women in Hendersonville, North Carolina, who are fighting cancer. We want to give these strong women the support and encouragement they need to keep pushing forward.

All participants who register by Sunday, March 24th at midnight will receive a free commemorative, She Slays race shirt, and the first 350 to register will also receive a custom, She Slays finisher Medal. If you register after the deadline, you will receive a finisher medal and shirts will be available in limited sizes and quantities for $20.


Honor a loved one

Purchase a yard sign in memory of or to honor someone who either lost their battle with cancer or is currently in the midst of their battle. The sign will feature their name and the color of the ribbon that represents their type of cancer. The sign will be publicly displayed on the course along 'Memory Mile.'

If you're joining us for the race, you can select this option during your registration. If you don't plan to participate in the event, simply click the 'Register' button and select the 'In Memory of' sub-event. The deadline to purchase your sign is March 30th at midnight. Proceeds benefit the Pardee Hospital Foundation.

Your sign (and shirt, if you choose to purchase one) can be picked up at the Pardee Hospital Foundation offices (561 Fleming St, Hendersonville, NC 28739) Monday after the race from 9am - 5pm.
