CONEY ISLAND -

Thousands of people hit the boardwalk in Coney Island on Sunday in honor of breast cancer awareness.

Local breast cancer survivors, caregivers and volunteers made their way from MCU Park to the Boardwalk to raise money for the American Cancer Society.

The 3.1-mile walk was organized by Making Strides Brooklyn. The goal is to show breast cancer survivors they are not alone.

The event raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for cancer research every year.
