$500,000 dollars raised for American Cancer Society

Headline Goes Here

The journey to end breast cancer starts with a single step.

35 thousand people took part in the "Put On Your Pink Bra", American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5k walk.

More than 500 thousand dollars was raised to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease with breast cancer research, information and services, and access to mammograms for women who need them.

Ann Romney, the wife of Republican Presidential nominee, Governor Mitt Romney, walked around Lake Eola as a participant and a breast cancer survivor.

While many of the participants appreciated her presence, dedicated supporters say this is a cause that goes beyond political party lines with a purpose to save lives and raise awareness.
