LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – An estimated 30,000 residents from around the community helped raised more than $665,000 to fight breast cancer.

Proceeds from the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk will go toward funding cutting edge research and promoting education.

“Our Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk ensures no one faces breast cancer alone by bringing the community together, funding innovative breast cancer research, promoting education and risk reduction and providing comprehensive patient support to those who need it most,” Kristie Thorstad, Louisville community manager for the American Cancer Society, said.

Officials say the event was an example of passion in action.
