It was a sea of pink in Northbrook Friday morning as thousands took their first steps in the Breast Cancer 3-Day walk. The opening ceremony was held early Friday morning at Northbrook Court.

The walk showcases the north suburbs.

The 60-mile journey wraps up downtown, with a closing ceremony at Soldier Field.

Last year, Chicago area walkers raised more than $6 million for the fight against breast cancer.
