Pink Out for Hope’s Booby Bolt 5K and Fun Run drew in a record-breaking crowd to Pleasant View on the morning of October 2, 2021. Runners, walkers, and supporters proudly sported pink attire while spreading hope, cancer education, and friendship throughout the community.

After a "pandemic pause" last year, this year's event boasted 671 registered participants- topping the 2019 Bolt which had 495.

The day's 5k was not the only area that saw growth. The Fun Run had more than double the participation than usual, with a total of 62 children registering this time around.

In addition to following current CDC and state guidelines concerning COVID-19, the organization also offered the option for participants to run their 5K virtually.

Created to raise both money and awareness for breast cancer, this year’s Bolt was named to celebrate local breast cancer survivor, Angeline Heath.

"We were so happy to celebrate her and her beating breast cancer," said Amy Douglas with Pinkout for Hope.

Platinum sponsors of the event were: The Livery Stables, Cheatham County Exchange, Guthrie Kitchen & Bath, Doug's Auto Sales, Reliant Bank, Sycamore Academy, 22 Plinkster, and Frontier Basement.

Pink Out Partners this year were: Snap Fitness, CEMC, Valerie Kemp-CPA, Lynn Newcomb-Attorney at Law, AO Smith, KARS, Joelton Shopper, The Post, Family Health Center of Ashland City, Dunlap Roofing, Tanya Shannon- Century 21 Platinum Properties, United Structural Systems, DreamMaker Realty, US Bank, and Berry Seagroves- State Farm Insurance.
