CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

The cold weather didn't stop people from getting out their running shoes Saturday morning. 

The Beyond Pink Team hosted its 8th Annual Pink Ribbon 5K Run in Cedar Falls Saturday.

More than 700 people registered for the event. 54 were cancer survivors.

"I ran for all those women before me, the warrior women who paved the way. I'm here today because of them and I am forever grateful," Kellie Leasure, a stage-four cancer survivor said.

The Beyond Pink Team raised $26,000 in last year's run.

They hope that number will increase as 100 more people registered for this year's Pink Ribbon Run.
