MARSHALL -Runnings has announced that its Ladies Night promotion generated $18,958 to help in the fight against breast cancer.

  The annual event, which was hosted Oct. 19 at 30 stores, welcomed thousands of customers for an evening of fun events and giveaways. Customers purchased a 5-gallon pink Runnings bucket to receive a discount on whatever items fit inside. Runnings donated $1 from the sale of each bucket to breast cancer research and education within each hosting store’s region.

  “Ladies Night has become a popular event with our customers as well as our store teams,” said Adele Reed, who owns Runnings along with her husband, Dennis. “We want to make a difference in supporting the fight against this devastating disease which has affected so many of our families, friends and neighbors over the years.”

  Since it first started in 2010, Ladies Night has raised close to $50,000 for cancer affiliated organizations. Worthington’s Runnings store was among those involved in this year’s event.

  Runnings operates 39 stores in six states and employs more than 2,000 team members. Founded in 1947, Runnings is privately owned by the Dennis and Adele Reed Family. The company offers a comprehensive selection of merchandise including clothing, tools, sporting goods, pet supplies, automotive, farm and ranch supplies, lawn and garden, hardware, power equipment, toys and more.
