Local residents are invited to join a sea of pink on Thursday and Friday nights at a 5K run/walk and a special talk in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Both events benefit the local nonprofit organization Project Pink, which provides help to young women with breast cancer.

Davis resident Ann Murray Paige founded Project Pink when she was diagnosed with breast cancer nearly a decade ago. In that time, she co-created and produced the highly acclaimed documentary “The Breast Cancer Diaries” along with two books, “Words to Live By” and “Pink Tips.” All three provide hope and understanding to young women with breast cancer.

The run/walk, presented by A Change of Pace, begins at 6 p.m. Friday at Putah Creek Winery, 9518 Drummond Ave. in Davis. The first 500 registrants will receive a Project Pink wine glass. After the fun run, participants will gather for Putah Creek Winery samples and hors d’oeuvres. Registration is available online at http://changeofpace.com/project-pink-5k through noon Friday, and at Fleet Feet Davis, 615 Second St., until 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

“Virtual runner” options are available for those who cannot attend but would like to support the cause.

Paige will speak about her personal journey, staying positive as she battles a re-diagnosis, and the nutrition and exercise that keep her going strong at a free talk from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the Hallmark Inn, 110 F St.

She will reflect on how she uses positive thoughts to cope, and why it’s important to “let go of what doesn’t matter in life to find what really does.” She’ll play snippets of her documentary “The Breast Cancer Diaries.” After the talk, she will be on hand to sign copies of her book, “Pink Tips.”

Paige is an inspirational speaker who was recently honored at the Boston “One Hundred,” which recognized 100 heroes whose passion and work in philanthropy advance the fight against cancer.
