Thousands of people -- including many survivors -- stepped off on a 60-mile, three day walk to raise money and awareness for breast cancer.

Their journey started in Northbrook Friday morning. They will travel through Glenview, Mount Prospect and Des Plaines. Then they go through the city, walking through Lincoln Park to Soldier Field on Sunday.

The walkers will set up camp on Friday and Saturday night.

The walk is one of more than a dozen organized around the country by Susan G. Komen for the cure.
