"Making Strides Against Breast Cancer" walk raises thousands of dollars

A huge crowd showed up for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event at Keehi Lagoon Beach Park Saturday morning.

With survivors on the front line to lead the way, thousands boldly stepped forward to fight another battle in the war against breast cancer.

"We always say our survivors are our celebrities".

This year's goal is to raise more than $37,000, which is used for breast cancer research and programs that provide services to breast cancer patients, such as Look Good, Feel Better and Reach to Recovery. Wilkerson's mother is also a survivor.

Laura Paxton is the Executive Director of United in Pink.

"We are riding on this national acceptance to increase our visibility, and by extension, heighten and sustain awareness about this debilitating disease, which, but for our consistency, would have needlessly destroyed several precious lives and families".

"We have noticed great growth year after year with just the community involvement and excitement around this event and with major support for our survivors", she said. "Not only of your friends, but the entire community to come out and support you".

"While I have never visited Fiji I certainly would be interested in coming to Fiji and supporting your breast cancer awareness campaign".

And coming together is what it's all about.
