More than 250 people gathered in the parking lot of a local Winter Park, Florida, store to create a giant human pink ribbon

The group donned pink shirts, hats and shoes while braving the sweltering Florida heat, all to raise awareness about breast cancer and to help promote fundraisers and events.
Originally, organizers had expected a turnout of about 100 people, but the crowd exceeded their expectations, with many participants having been touched by breast cancer in one way or another.
Mike Potthast, owner of a local photography studio, volunteered to do a flyover picture that would capture the entire pink ribbon.
"We took off and landed from Brown's Seaplane Base on Lake Jessie," he told the news source. "I thought this would be a good thing to do for the community and for breast cancer research."
He took the shot from 1,000 feet in the air, resulting in a spectacular portrait of breast cancer supporters coming together for a good cause.
There are currently 2.5 million breast cancer survivors living in the United States, according to the American Cancer Society.
