People came out to support breast cancer survivors and to help raise funds to find a cure for the disease.

Charleston's 2nd annual "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5-K Walk/Run" took place Saturday.

Hundreds lined up at the Columbia Gas Building to begin the event.

13 News Reporter Nicky Walters, a cancer survivor, spoke at the event.

All proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society.
