Around 800 expected at Pink Ribbon Run; location changed

Posted: Updated:

Despite the water going down, plans are still being changed.

It's been almost a week since the Cedar River crested in Cedar Falls.

The cleanup is not over, so the annual Pink Ribbon Run is moving.

A lot has had to be canceled or closed this past week because of flooding concerns.

Tomorrow's Pink Ribbon Run is not canceled. It's just moving. 

The run will now be happening in Prairie Lakes Trail. 

It will both start and end near Mudd Advertising. 

This event raises money for people in the community dealing with breast cancer.

KWWL's Amanda Gilbert spoke with a breast cancer survivor about what events like this mean to her. Marina Steffener said, "This is a time where my family and I come together and we really celebrate life. We are here to be thankful for each other, and all the time that we've had." 

The race starts tomorrow at 8 in the morning.

Organizers say this is just another example of how the community can come together.

Last year the Pink Ribbon Run raised almost $50,000.

It costs $35.00 to participate.
