Pink Dress Run
In the midst of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, one special event took place in Gulfport this afternoon.
The Pink Dress Run was held at Chandeleur Island Brewing Company to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. Dozens of community residents gathered for a one mile run around downtown Gulfport dressed in their pretty pink dresses and skirts to support loved ones, friends, and overall a good cause.
A few of the participants in today’s race tell News 25 their reason for running. “It shows how strong women are and how much strength they have to overcome breast cancer.”
“It was for a good cause and it was fun to get out here. It was for a good cause.”
Each year, breast cancer awareness runs like the Pink Dress Run raise millions of dollars for breast cancer research.
