LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE ) – Thousands of people were united in the fight against breast cancer Sunday afternoon during the WAVE 3 and American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk.
The event raises awareness and money to fight breast cancer, and it provides hope to people facing the disease.
It is estimated that more than 227,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer before 2012 is over.
For many people like walker Debra Wine, the event is personal. "We started out walking with my mom in 1999," Wine said. "We lost my mom in 2006 and just carried on the tradition of walking in her memory."
This year, for the first time, breast cancer survivors got to join the "Living Ribbon of Hope."
$720,000 was raised at this year's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk at Waterfront Park.
WAVE 3's Dawne Gee was among the thousands of participants.
