Registration now open for annual Pink Ribbon Run

Posted: Updated:

Registration is now open for an important charity run/walk coming up in the Cedar Valley.  

The 11th annual Pink Ribbon Run isn't until Saturday, October 7, but registration is already underway.  You can register online.

You can also join the Pink Ribbon Committee and help get things going by attending the 'Kick Off to Registration' party July 11, 4-7 pm at the Pump Haus Pub & Grill, at 311 Main Street in downtown Cedar Falls.

The 'Kick Off to Registration' party will feature pink drinks, food, prizes and Pink Ribbon Run registration at the Pump Haus.

In its 10 years, the race has raised thousands of dollars for the local Beyond Pink TEAM, a non-profit support organization for breast cancer survivors and those living with breast cancer.

Last year, the race raised #37,000 for the Beyond Pink TEAM.

Presenting sponsors for the October 7 Pink Ribbon Run run are Oakridge Realtors   and the University of Iowa Community Credit Union.

Entry fee is $ 30.00 until September 22, and $35.00 after September 22.

There is no T-shirt guarantee for registrations submitted after September 22, but there will be refreshments, door prizes and an awards ceremony following the October 7 run. Door prizes provided by Cedar Falls merchants.

Participation is FREE for breast cancer survivors, thanks to this year's Survivor Sponsor, Community Auto Group.

The Pink Ribbon Run starts at 8 am, Saturday, October 7, in front of the Cedar Falls Community Center at 528 Main Street in downtown Cedar Falls.
