Breast cancer walk raises funds, awareness

A rainy morning couldn't dampen the spirits of those taking part in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk on Sunday.

The event began at Montrose Harbor. Money raised by the walk goes to the American Cancer Society for research, education and helping those coping with breast cancer. ABC7 was a proud sponsor of the walk.

ABC7's Roz Varon is a breast cancer survivor, and took part in the walk with ABC7's Judy Hsu.

A new taxi service was also launched Sunday. A portion of each fare collected by the Pink Taxi Cabs will go toward education and breast cancer research.
