Susan G. Komen walkers embark on three-day, 60-mile Tampa Bay journey

CLEARWATER — A local park was a sea of pink at sunrise Friday morning as 1,600 walkers gathered for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure 60-mile fundraising walk to benefit breast cancer research.

The walkers left Sand Key Park in Clearwater early Friday morning. Participants walk 20 miles a day and camp overnight.

Part of the proceeds from the fundraiser go toward research and local community programs supporting education, screening and treatment.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.
