Thousands raise funds to find breast cancer cure

Thousands were in Prospect Park Sunday to raise funds to find a cure for breast cancer.



The walk was part of a nationwide effort to raise awareness and funding for breast cancer research.



Money raised from the event will also help fund patient service programs like free wigs and rides for those going through treatment.



Organizers say the event is especially crucial for cancer research and raises nearly a $1 million every year.



The American Cancer Society estimates more than 245,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year.
