Hundreds Make Strides Against Breast Cancer in Hartford

Hundreds of people took a walk together in Hartford Sunday to raise awareness and money for breast cancer research and treatment.

This was the 25th year of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Greater Hartford event.

This year, the weather was nice enough for the event to be held outside with an opening ceremony beginning at the pavilion at Bushnell Park.

Survivors, caregivers, those currently fighting the disease, and others impacted by it dressed in all different shades of pink for the 5k.

Attendees raised money for the American Cancer Society.

If you missed this walk, you can still donate or attend other walks in Connecticut that are happening this month as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Registration for the walk is free, but walkers are encouraged to fund raise. For more information, click here. 

NBC Connecticut and Telemundo Connecticut were proud to join forces with the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk.
