Pink Ribbon Run

Cedar Falls Co8th Pink Ribbon Run logommunity Main Street is preparing for it’s 8th Annual Pink Ribbon Run on Saturday, October 4, 2014. As usual we will have great door prizes, awards and Panera Bagels at race end. But the Pink Ribbon Run committee has added a few new traditions in the past years. We honor our breast cancer survivors with strands of beads to represent the number of years they have lived with breast cancer. We also think it is important for our survivors to come together. So we set aside a time for survivors to help in the painting of a flag to carry to the race start. We hope to add a few new things too!

The Pink Ribbon Run registrants will find new options available to them when they register this year. The committee is hoping to encourage the community to form teams to show their support of breast cancer and the work of the Beyond Pink TEAM. Any team that signs up will be given a reserved gathering location for pre & post race festivities (weather permitting) in front of the Cedar Falls Community Center.
