Taking steps to save lives

Montgomery, Ala. (WSFA) -- Thousands of folks put their walking shoes on for a cause Saturday: The Walk of Life.

Breast cancer survivors and supporters took part in the event in downtown Montgomery. It raises awareness and money for the Joy to Life Foundation. The organization provides free mammogram.

Organizers say over 3,000 people took part in today's event, far surpassing last-year's walk.

Joy and Richard Blondheim of Montgomery founded Joy to Life.  Joy is a breast cancer survivor.
