On Wednesday, organizers of the Susan G. Komen '2021 Evansville More Than Pink Walk' said that the in-person holding of the event was being canceled.

A statement from the breast cancer foundation said that the in-person option for the event was being canceled due to risks created by the COVID-19 pandemic and the impacts of the delta variant of the virus.

While the walk will no longer be held in a large group setting, organizers say there will still be an at-home version of the event that everyone can participate in.

“We are excited about the one-of-a-kind, at-home program we have created for you to Walk in your neighborhood, with your team, family, and friends,” said Rachel Smith. “We'll still count down to the Walk together with the Power of One week, starting on Monday, September 20, 2021. Join us for a week of fundraising challenges, celebration and fun, leading up to our Walk on Sunday, September 26, 2021. Thank you for your commitment to our ONE vision: a world without breast cancer.”

The More Than Pink Walk is the Susan G. Komen organization's signature fundraising event.

Funds raised by the Walk help support Komen's work to advocate on behalf of breast cancer patients and survivors, invest in breakthrough research, and provide needed support to those facing breast cancer, according to the organization.

Today's high temperature of 87° was our warmest in a week and a half - we last climbed that high on the afternoon of September 18th when we tipped the scales at 88°. The remainder of the evening will remain quite mild under clear skies; expect temperatures to first fall to 83° by dinnertime before dropping to 73° by 10PM. The clear skies and weak southerly wind flow will help keep temperatures relatively stable during the overnight and predawn hours - we'll wake up to a morning low of just 62° early Wednesday morning.
