KENNEWICK, WA- More than 600 people in pink made strides against breast cancer Saturday morning at Columbia Park in Kennewick.

Cancer survivors spoke at the ceremony and their families and friends walked to show support.

Experts said one in every two women recently diagnosed with breast cancer has reached out to support others, that is what the event organizers said the walk was all about. 

“The Breast Cancer survivors are not alone.  There's so much more support going on to come out today and show the pink and their pride and strength and family.  We're all in it together,” said event chairperson Jackie Harvey.

This was the 6th year the American Cancer Society has sponsored this event, and they hope the annual walk will keep growing to help save more lives.
