Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Downtown Richmond was flooded with pink over the weekend.

Thousands of people showed up at the ninth annual "Making Strides Against Brest Cancer" walk to participate, support, and donate to the cause.

The walk raised more than $400,000 which will go toward breast cancer patient services and research.

One of the event organizers says it's not just about the event itself - it's about working toward the goal of having more birthdays in the world.
