Supporters walk for Cancer

Walnut Ridge, AR (KAIT)- Some residents in Region 8 put on their running shoes for the 8th Annual Cancer Walk Saturday morning.  The event was held in Downtown Walnut Ridge.

White and Purple balloons were released into the air in support of those who've suffered from the disease. The White balloons signified people that were lost fighting cancer. The Purple balloons signified life for the survivors. Organizers say most of the money raised stays in Lawrence County.
