Fountains around the Kansas City metropolitan area soon will be flowing with pink water to raise awareness of breast cancer.

A ceremony kicking off 10 days of pink fountains is scheduled for 9 a.m. Saturday at the J.C. Nichols Fountain near Kansas City's Country Club Plaza.

Local celebrities and breast cancer survivors will take part in the ceremony. Other fountains in Kansas City, Lee's Summit and communities north of the Missouri River, along with the Kansas communities of Lenexa, Olathe and Overland Park, also will have pink water through the end of the first week in October.

It's the ninth year in which area fountains will be turned pink to mark October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The fountain coloring is sponsored by the University of Kansas Cancer Center.
