Since 1993, more than 11 million supporters have raised more than $685 million nationwide. Last year in the Triangle, nearly 2,500 walked raising $249,000. In North Carolina alone, it is estimated that 9,712 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed with 1,412 women losing their battle to the disease.
