Walk raises awareness, thousands to...

SALISBURY, Md. - Locals were getting in gear in Salisbury Saturday for a great cause at Winterplace Park.

Hundreds of walkers came out for the 16th annual Walk for Awareness, an effort that organizers hope can raise $50,000.

The walk is put together every year for Women Supporting Women, with all proceeds going to the non-profit with all the money staying on Delmarva.

The non-profit is a grass roots organization started 24 years ago.  Organizer Amanda Smith says this event is one of the biggest awareness events on the shore.

"This is probably, yes, one of the biggest breast cancer awareness events on the shore and it's awesome because all of the funds stay here local and go to our breast cancer community...   It's important for men and women just brings awareness to breast cancer and to our organization where all of our services are free."
