The Susan G. Komen Tampa Bay 3-Day kicked off at Sand Key Park in Clearwater on Friday morning. The 60-mile walk raises funds for the Komen foundation's support of research and outreach programs in the fight against breast cancer. "It's amazing," said Trish Wabol, who was fishing at Clearwater Pass. "It's nice to see a lot of people walking … ." According to the event website, the 3-Day route covers approximately 15 to 22 miles each day. Evenings are spent camping with fellow walkers and crew members. Tampa Bay is one of 14 metropolitan areas in the United States that host the walks. The closing ceremony is scheduled for 5 p.m. Sunday at Spa Beach Park on St. Petersburg's downtown waterfront.
