Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk brings out hundreds

Posted: Updated:

It was a sea of pink as more than 800 people walked along the Columbia River in Richland for the community-wide 'Making Strides Against Breast Cancer' event.

This year the walk brought in more than $70,000 to go toward breast cancer research. With 4,500 women in Washington diagnosed last year with breast caner, those who came out for the walk say each person attending makes a difference.

"It's about hope, it's about solace for those that we've lost because we have people that are walking in memory of other people, but basically in hope of finding a cure," Michele Lawrence said.

Money raised will also go toward programs and services directly related to breast cancer.
