The month of October brings more than just pretty leaves and little trick or treaters. October is breast cancer awareness month. These 4 weeks are filled with 5Ks, benefit parties, gatherings and more to spread the word about this horrible illness that affects so many.

I try to participate in as many events as possible for the cause. Last year we ran a 5K and believe me when I say it was the perfect day… Even if I’m not much of a runner. 🙂 To join in and rally around friends, family and even complete strangers for a common purpose is something I’ll never forget.

So, how can you join in on the fun of fighting this cause with Tanger? Once again, I’m your girl!

Here are 6 Tanger Outlet centers that have sponsored races this year!

Tip: you can go to for each center’s race specifics: Commerce, Deer Park, Pittsburgh, Branson, Grand Rapids and Tilton.

If you’re not so much for running, no worries! There are plenty of other ways to show your support throughout the month! Here are a couple of awesome events at local Tanger Outlet centers (And obvi, some of these are subject to change):

Locust Grove

Reebok will be partnering with Tanger to host a Garage Games Crossfit tournament in the parking lot. Gather up your hubby, kiddos, friends and more on Saturday, October 15, from 11 AM to 4 PM to beat out the competition! The entry fee will be $50-$75 and all fees collected will be donated to the PINK Campaign.


Visit the Jeffersonville outlet for Fitness Fair Friday on Friday, October 14, from 11 AM to 1 PM with to-do’s such as a hip hop dance class, a Lunch & Learn session with a breast health seminar, a pink photo booth, free Tanger tote bags, bra fittings and more! Ohio has got it going on this year!

As for me, I’m taking part in a benefit party this year with a silent auction to show my support. Staying in the theme of pink, I have this exact outfit in mind.

And of course, I can find all of these pieces at Tanger which I can’t wait to purchase with my Tanger PINK card. A $5 card for 25% a single item at a single store every day throughout October? You can’t beat it. So if you’re headed to a more formal event, be inspired by this look! It will be perfect for the soiree and hellooo, how could you go wrong with pink purchases for a great cause?!
