ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Sunday morning people went the distance in support.

The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer awareness event consisted of a five mile walk starting at Cottonwood Mall.

The non-competitive walk is meant to raise both awareness and funds for a cancer that has taken the lives of so many.

One survivor told KRQE News 13 she could feel the support Saturday.

Breast cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in the U.S. among women behind only skin cancer.
