Connecting fitness and fundraising to support kids with cancer

The Hy-Vee® Pinky Swear 5K & Fun Run connects fitness and fundraising to support kids with cancer in your community and across the country. All ages and fitness levels are invited to become keepers of the pinky swear promise through an inspiring run/walk and family fitness festival in honor of All-Star kids with cancer!

The event is non-competitive and untimed.

All participants receive:

  • Fundraising Packet with All-Star trading cards
  • Participant t-shirt and bib
  • Race bag
  • Finishers medal

Participants run or walk in the spirit of a child who is battling cancer. 

Everyone has the opportunity to help raise funds to support families and help Pinky Swear Foundation pay mortgages, rent, provide groceries, make car payments, and provide unique experiences that help make daily life for these families a little easier.

What is a Pinky Swear All-Star?

Kids with cancer demonstrate courage, patience and resilience every day. We call them All-Stars!

Your Pinky Swear All-Star

 We call them All-Stars! After registering online, participants will receive a fundraising kit in the mail with All-Star trading cards. The All-Star on the trading card included in your fundraising kit will become the inspiration for your race. One of the most meaningful parts of your day and your participation in the Hy-Vee Pinky Swear 5K & Fun Run is the moment we write the name of the All-Star on the back of your leg before the run/walk at body marking.


When you register and fundraise for Pinky Swear, you can earn prizes!

The more you raise, the higher value prize you can earn. Challenge yourself to raise at least $250 by December 31 and you will have a choice of branded Pinky Swear swag and cool gear. You can also win the very special Pinky Swear Keeper Award for recruiting the most fundraisers to your team, along with an invitation for your whole team to the celebration party.
