ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Thousands of New Mexicans came out to the Cottonwood Mall Sunday morning to help finish the fight against breast cancer.
Sunday was the 14th annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk, sponsored by the American Cancer Society.
All proceeds go to the society to give women the resources they need to fight breast cancer and to find a cure.
"I'm just totally blown away at the number of people that are here and participating," breast cancer survivor, Linda Yasm said. "Everybody in my family is here. People from work all showed up today to walk for me. So it's really, really heartwarming."
Nearly 1,500 women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year in New Mexico.
