Hundreds of breast cancer survivors donning pink shirts were walking through Tom Brown's park raising money for the American Cancer Society.
With Leon High School raising 7,500 for the event, it's the single most largest contribution of the day.
The outpouring of support is bringing smiles to breast cancer survivors.
"One thing we need is hope, and when we see people out supporting us like this we have hope and we know there are other people out there going through what we have gone through and their there for us to help us go through our time", said Linda Teague, breast cancer survivor.
"I've been totally humbled and gratified for the out pour love and support from the schools, principal it's just so heart warming", said Marsha Click, fighting cancer for 12 years.
More than 400,000 participants in 100 cities across the country joined the American Cancer Society raising more than 34 million dollars to fight this disease.
