Over 64,000 people took part and united to raise money to help fight breast cancer.

The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation put on the 10th annual event. The foundation began back in 1982 in memory of Nancy Brinker’s sister, who died of breast cancer.

The idea behind the event is to get people to pledge money to participants who walk or run for a distance of 5KM.

This year, the event was a major success as it took in over $3 million to help breast cancer patients.
