More than 7,000 people participated in Sunday's "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer" walk to benefit the American Cancer Society's research, education, advocacy and quality of life programs.
Spokeswoman Rachel Dawson said the walkers raised about $530,000 for the program. The five-mile walk began under sunny skies at Yeatman's Cove, winding through the streets of downtown Cincinnati before crossing the Purple People Bridge, along Newport streets, then back over the bridge and ending at Yeatman's Cove. Since the walks started here in 1998, more than 44,000 walkers have raised more than $2.4 million to fight breast cancer, Dawson said.
