About us

The Pink Turtle is owned and operated by friends and running partners, Christine Kendle and Carey Pauley.

The name, The Pink Turtle, is a tribute to Carey’s 10-year old daughter, Savannah, who went to Heaven September 13, 2009 after a courageous battle with cancer. The Pink Turtle actually refers to Savannah, who was an honorary member of her mom’s running club, “The Turtles” and whose favorite color was pink. The Pink Turtle carries a SAVANNAHSTRONG line of merchandise, the phrase that was inspired by Savannah’s accomplishments and her incredible spirit while living with cancer. A portion of the proceeds are donated to help fight pediatric cancer.
