Thousands of people put on their pink for the 13th annual 'Making Strides Against Breast Cancer' walk.

Robin Berner was one of the 6,000 walkers at Holmes Lake Park on Sunday. She was diagnosed with cancer two years ago.

"I'm going to die, that was my first thought, and then after we got into it more it became more of a reality that if I fight this, I can make it, I really can make it," Berner said.

Seven surgeries and countless hours in the hospital later, she did. Berner is now cancer-free.

As a survivor, Berner isn't alone. Berner and more than 400 others wore a survivor medal to signify that they've won their battle against breast cancer.

Organizers say many don't realize how common the disease is. About one in eight women are diagnosed during their lifetime.

"It just gives them a new energy and that's what we really are looking to keep these people vigorous to go, and keep going and keep winning this battle," Walk manager Randall Jantzen said.

Walkers had the option of mile or three mile routes around Holmes Lake. Jantzen says it makes the year of planning worth it.

More than $100,000 were raised from this year's walk, money that will go to the American Cancer Society to help save more lives.
