Paint the Town Pink was created ten years ago to support breast cancer research at The Hormel Institute, UMN and has raised over $2 million to support innovative cancer research projects. The Great Paint the Town Pink Challenge was created to make sure that goal continues, especially this year when COVID-19 is preventing many events from taking place.

The Great Paint the Town Pink Challenge will take you and your team all around Austin to complete challenges and fill out a Challenge bingo card to win prizes and be entered in drawings – this is a great opportunity to get your family or a group of friends out of the house to have some fun. Tasks include skeet shooting at the Cedar Valley Conservation Club, going up against an Austin Bruins Goalie, posing with a demo derby car and much more.
