About the 2017 Liz Hurley Ribbon Run Event
The 14th Annual Liz Hurley Ribbon Run will be on Saturday, October 21, 2017. The 5K course will take runners through beautiful downtown Huntsville, including the Twickenham and Old Town Historic Districts. The race will begin at 8:00am followed by awards at 9:30 and the Survivors' Walk at 10:00.
Proceeds from the 2016 Ribbon Run were used to purchase a biopsy system that will be used in conjunction with 3D mammography and allow breast radiologists to perform 3D tomo-assisted breast biopsies. Event proceeds also provided an ultrasound machine that will enhance the Breast Center's screening capabilities.
Proceeds from the 2017 Ribbon Run will be used to purchase an additional 3D tomosynthesis mammography machine. With this technology, multiple 3-dimensional pictures of the breast are taken, making breast cancer easier to detect, particularly in dense breast tissue.
