Thousands take to streets for Miami’s Susan G. Komen breast cancer research walk/run

·1 min read

A mass of thousands of breast cancer survivors, their friends and loved ones marched up Biscayne Boulevard through Maurice A. Ferre Park and back down Biscayne Saturday in this year’s Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure — More Than Pink Walk to raise money for research in treating breast cancer.

This year’s annual Breast Cancer Awareness Month event comes 12 months after last October’s walk was turned into a virtual event by the COVID-19 pandemic and 12 days after Gov. Ron DeSantis announced his wife, Casey DeSantis, had been diagnosed as having breast cancer.

Miami police expected 4,000 people Saturday.
