Steppin’ Out in Pink goes virtual

Published

on

Adapting to challenges from COVID-19, Gundersen Health System is celebrating its 15th Annual Steppin’ Out in Pink online.

The first virtual run/walk is happening now through Sept. 12. The event looks different, but the mission is still the same: to support local breast cancer research and patients, subsidize mammograms, and support the Center for Cancer & Blood Disorders as well as the Norma J. Vinger Center for Breast Care.

Sign up can be completed online. It is just one of many ways to celebrate survivors, recognize those who lost loved ones and show support.

There is a Survivor’s Parade (in vehicles only) coming up Saturday, Sept. 12 in the Valley View Mall parking lot. Sign up to join the Pink Survivor Drive here.
