Pink Dress Run 2013

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - The 2013 Pink Dress Run was held in Alexandria as a fundraiser for the upcoming Komen Cenla Race for the Cure.

The event was held along Wimbledon Drive in Alexandria. It was presented by Walker Automotive and Crossfit Southbank. Food was provided to the crowd by Red River Bank and John Ward Ace Hardware. Beverages were provided by Jack's Drinks and Smokes. Live music was provided by "The Side Men."

The event includes a two-mile fun walk/run in a family-friendly, non-competitive environment. Those participating wore plenty of pink to support the Komen Cenla Race for the Cure, which will take place in Downtown Alexandria on Saturday, October 19, 2013.

It's held in honor of cancer survivors, those battling the disease and in memory of those who passed away from the disease.
