When and Where to ‘Step Out’

Saturday, September 9, 2017
8:45 a.m. Kickoff on Gundersen - La Crosse Campus walking trail on the main stage, rain or shine!  There will be a short program along with special survivor recognition.

9:00 a.m. Official start time.  Walk all or part of the 2.5 or 4.5 mile course, shuttle available at Pepsi for those needing assistance. Be on the trail by 10 a.m. to ensure trail services. Complete your walk by noon.  Walk begins at the VIP Trail - which begins in the back of Parking Lot F.  Use 1836 South Avenue, La Crosse, WI to direct you to the hospital - there will be signage all around for parking and directions to the start of the trail. 

At markers, volunteers from Gundersen departments and sponsors will offer motivation, refreshments, first aid, places to rest and our fabulous “Tinkled Pink” Potties.

No dogs, rollerblades or runners allowed on the walk.

Raise money. Win prizes.
Get in the spirit and celebrate eleven years of raising money for local breast cancer research by raising money individually or setting up a team to help make this the best year yet. Pink ribbon trophies will be awarded to the top three community teams, top three Gundersen teams, top three corporate teams, top three individual fundraisers and team with the highest percentage of money raised for Gundersen, community and corporate teams. 

Web Pages and Pledges
Set up your individual or team web page and encourage friends, family and co-workers to help you reach your goal. Many employers offer an “employee match program” for donations, ask donors to check on this option. Pledging online through this site is encouraged.
