The Susan G. Komen organization announced Wednesday that this year’s “More Than Pink” walk will be held October 18th at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds.
The event, previously known as “Race for the Cure,” was scheduled for June. However, organizers said they changed the date in light of the recent progression of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic and guidance by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to reschedule mass gatherings.
“Our event is a day where we can all put aside everything else in our lives and share our space, our stories, our laughter, and our tears to raise money that saves lives,” organizers said in a media release. “As such, we look forward to sharing that day with you later this year.”
