ATLANTA (AP) -- The Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk wrapped up this weekend in Atlanta, with more than $4.2 million raised for breast cancer research and awareness.
Officials said nearly 1,600 pink-clad walkers traveled 60 miles over three days before finishing Saturday at Turner Field. They averaged 20 miles per day and slept in tents along the way.
The Susan G. Komen Foundation told WAGA-TV that 75 percent of the proceeds will go to national research and large public health outreach programs and the remaining 25 percent will support local community and affiliate outreach programs.
