INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) – After being rained out once, they’re not taking any chances. The Komen Central Indiana Pink Parade and Celebration set for Saturday at the Pyramids is being moved inside.

Instead of taking place in the parking lot, it will take place in large open space on the second floor of Building 2.

Komen communications manager, Liz Mensching said, “with the forecast calling for an 80-percent chance of rain, we decided to just move it inside,” adding there’s plenty of space.

The Komen Race for the Cure, held annually in Indianapolis, was canceled April 29 due to heavy rain and storms, leaving many participants disappointed.

The race draws thousands of breast cancer survivors, their friends and families, as well those walking on behalf of loved who have died of the disease.

The event raises money for breast cancer research. Because of being rained out, Komen Central Indiana’s fell $245,000 short of its fundraising goal.

Supporters can still donate online to fill the gap.

Saturday’s event runs from 12:30 p.m. until 2:30 p.m. For all details and updates regarding the Pink Parade and Celebration, visit www.komencentralindiana.org.
