SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The 10th annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is this weekend in Savannah.

Hundreds will sport their pink attire and head out to Ellis Square to celebrate life and raise money for the fight against breast cancer.

There will be lots of foot traffic Saturday for the race, and parts of downtown Savannah will be blocked off. Everything will start and finish at Ellis Square on W. Congress Street.

The race will be Saturday, April 21 starting at 7:45 a.m. with the Survivor's Processional. That will be followed by the one-mile walk at 8:15 and the 5K at 8:30.

The following is a full list of race day events for Saturday:
