The 7th annual El Paseo Walk was held on Oct. 12. Registration and speakers were held at the Gardens on El Paseo. Vendors sold pink cancer t-shirts, ribbons, sparkley Tattoos,and pink doggie wear. Water, bananas,apples and healthy snacks were provided to the walkers.

Walkers came in all ages, while many came alone, others came in large groups from families and businesses. Families with babies in strollers and people in wheelchairs were seen among the crowd. Some brought their dogs dressed in pink for the occasion. Pink costumes and specially made t-shirts for businesses and families were the norm. Emcee was Patty Daly Caruso again this year as she has emceed this event since the beginning.

Proclamations from local leaders were given to the Desert Cancer Foundation prior to the start of the walk on the upper walkway over looking the sea of pink below. Businesses showed support along the route by putting large bunches of pink balloons in front of their stores.

Over 1000 participated in this walk. They were hoping to raise over $150.000 this year to provide Breast Cancer screenings and other services to local women of the Valley.
