Over 10,000 people walk for Breast Cancer at Yeatman's Cove

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - In continuing the fight for breast cancer, over 10,000 people joined together Sunday morning for a 5-mile walk called Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.

The American Cancer society started this event to collect funds that will help pay for mammogram's, provide support programs to improve patients' quality of life and educate people about the prevention and early detection of breast cancer.

The race began near Mehring Way and crossed into Newport via the Purple People Bridge then returned to Cincinnati on the Taylor Southgate Bridge. The end point was back at Yeatman's Cove.

Survivors received gifts and hugs at the tend along the Serpentine Wall.
