Over 12,000 came to Frontier Field on Sunday to take part in a breast cancer walk.

The American Cancer Society's annual "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer" walk took place Sunday morning, and local breast cancer survivors were joined by family members, caregivers, volunteers, and community members for a three mile walk through the city.

The goal was to raise money and awareness to help eliminate breast cancer, but it also about giving hope, according to organizers.

"This is, in my opinion, one of the most supportive communities in the entire country," said Michael Crisona of the American Cancer Society of Rochester, "When the city of Rochester gets behind a cause, the result is just incredible."

Organizers say that the walkers were able to raise about 500 thousand dollars this year.
