Confetti every 15 minutes, yoga, artists. Steppin’ Out In Pink this year will be more than a cancer walk.
The event is a go for Sept. 11. Steppin’ Out In Pink is an annual walk for local breast cancer research and other breast cancer initiatives through the Gundersen Medical Foundation in La Crosse.
“The beautiful thing is that all stays local,” Tia Sneath with Gundersen said of the donations received. “It helps our research lab with breast cancer research, it helps patient support programs and it offsets costs of mammograms for those who are underinsured.”
Mid-West Family La Crosse is proud to help sponsor the event, embarking on the 16th year of raising money for breast cancer research and awareness.
Sneath told the Z93 Morning Buzz there will be a virtual option to participate, as well as in person. The in-person event will feature staggered start times between 8:30 a.m. and 10 a.m., allowing participants to chose when they sign up.
Sneath added they have confetti so it will feel like a race start every 15 minutes.
Palm and Pine will be doing a morning yoga session, that participants can register for on the Steppin’ Out In Pink website. The event is also adding a market this year with food, artists and other vendors to get more of our community involved.
Early bird registration is on through the end of June. Right now, participants will receive their T-shirt and registration for only $20.
For those that don’t feel comfortable joining the event, or those living out of the area, the virtual option will be Sept. 1-11.

If you still need a little nudge to get signed up, Festival Foods donated a 65″ Smart TV that walkers are entered to win.
