East Texans gathered at Bergfeld Park on Saturday to celebrate breast cancer survivorship, encourage those currently living with the disease and spread awareness of the importance of early detection.

The 2019 Komen Tyler More Than Pink Walk, formerly the Tyler Race for the Cure, once again brought out a variety of individuals and teams who have been affected by breast cancer. 

According to a website created for the event by organizers, the walk raised more than $54,000.

Proceeds help Komen Greater Central and East Texas fund community-based clinics and service providers so they can support the continuum of care for breast health.
