Mary Kay Ash dreamed of a world where women are healthy, safe, and empowered. The Foundation wants to honor her dream by making our annual 5k event THE #1 PINK RACE in October known for bringing people together to run for good. All proceeds benefit the Mary Kay Ash Foundation℠.

Mary Kay Ash Foundation Mission

Guided by Mary Kay Ash’s dream to enrich the lives of women everywhere, the Mary Kay Ash Foundation raises and distributes funds to invest in breakthrough cancer research and clinical trials to find a cure for women-related cancers and ending domestic violence. 

Since 1996, the Mary Kay Ash Foundation℠, a 501(c)3 organization, has contributed more than $96 million to organizations aligned with its two-fold mission. In addition, the Foundation supports awareness initiatives, community outreach programs, and advocates for legislation to ensure women are healthy and safe. Through our global charitable foundations in Brazil, Canada, China and the United States, we are collectively making a deeper impact on the lives of women around the world.
