CHARLOTTE, N.C. —

Hundreds of people will start their walk around Charlotte on Saturday to raise money for breast cancer awareness.

It's the 11th annual Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.

This is video from previous years of the big event where people will walk 26 or 39 miles during the weekend.

Program Director Eloise Caggiano is an eight-year breast cancer survivor and said every donation helps.

"A lot of the money we raise gives people the breast cancer care they need regardless of their ability to pay for it which is so fantastic because everyone deserves the same chance of survival I had," Caggiano said.

Walkers must raise a minimum of $1,800 to take part in the event.
