Thousands attend breast cancer 5K in Dayton

The donations from the walk went directly to the support, transportation, recovery, and other needs that arise with the diagnosis of breast cancer.

The donations to the American Cancer Society also help support breast cancer research to better understand, prevent, find, and treat the disease, read the release.

In 2018, over 1 million walkers across the country have collected over $60 million to help fight cancer.

Cox Media Group Ohio was a sponsor of the event.
