The third annual Pink Strides run in Newark, Ohio featured 150 walkers and runners and raised thousands of dollars this past weekend, according to NewarkAdvocate.com
The event featured a 5K run and a 1-mile walking trail, allowing participants to pencil in some exercise while viewing the beautiful fall foliage.
Screening and Survivor Support for Breast Cancer coordinator Medha Sutliff seemed especially pleased with how the fundraiser turned out.
"All the people there thought it was really great," she told the news outlet. "Everything went wonderfully. We had beautiful weather and a beautiful course out there at Infirmary Mound Park."
The funds garnered from the daytime festivities will go on to help breast cancer patients in the area with monetary and emotional support, as well as aid financially-strained women with undergoing mammograms.
October is breast cancer awareness month, one of the most popular times of the year to take part in a walk or run for the cause. People interested in donating time or money may want to do some research to see what events are happening.
