Steppin’ Out In Pink Saturday in La Crosse

Steppin’ Out In Pink is this weekend La Crosse.

The annual event raises awareness and money for Breast Cancer research.

Volunteers were finishing setting up for the event Friday on Gundersen Health System’s La Crosse campus.

Organizers hope that every person walking will bring a cure one step closer to reality.

“We ar doing research locally and whatever we discover locally will help globally, so it has an impact on everybody,” said Debbie Kroner, Associate Director of Development with Gundersen Medical Foundation.

More than 6,000 walkers are expected to participate.

The walk starts Saturday at 9 a.m. on La Crosse’s south side.
