Around 350 people walked 2.5 miles to help find a cure for asthma at the American Lung Association of Florida Big Bend Region "Asthma Walk". An estimated 60,000 people in North Florida are affected by asthma. Many of those are children Zac Zepp who struggle from the illness everyday. "It's important to find a cure so that people get rid of asthma so they can have a good life."

The goal of the walk, to raise $40,000, and organizers say they think they received more than that this year. WCTV's Triston Sanders helped kick off the walk as the emcee.
