HICF 5K Draws a Colorful Crowd

HICF 5k

The soundside Kinnakeet Shores neighborhood was the most colorful spot on Hatteras Island on Saturday morning, October 8, thanks to the annual HICF Positively Pink 5K.

Returning live for the first time since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic, the event is a popular fundraiser for the Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation (HICF). Founded in the year 2000, the HICF provides assistance to local residents dealing with cancer to help with needs such as travel expenses, prescriptions, and medical supplies, as well as medical bills that are not covered by insurance.

Since its inception, the HICF has assisted over 211 islanders with cancer and their families, with grants in excess of $1,000,000.
