PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — There’s a reason to smile and cheer and there’s a reason to walk.

For the second straight day 2,200 women and even some men are getting ready for Philadelphia Susan G. Komen 3-day for the Cure. It’s another chance to show the community how many lives are affected by breast cancer each and every day.

Yesterday’s emotional opening ceremony at Willow Grove gave walkers a chance to reflect on their personal journey’s with breast cancer and remember the many lives that have been lost because of the deadly disease.

CBS 3 is a proud supporter of the event and joined participants in Mt.Airy on Friday. As this army of pink hits the pavement again today, they know the battle to cure breast cancer, can’t be won without a fight to the finish.
