At pit stops and houses along the route, volunteers were there to cheer walkers on.

Walkers stretching at pit stops and even red lights became a more common sight as the day wore on.

The route was marked with signs telling walkers how far they had come-and how far they had to go.

Walkers get their picture taken next to a statue commemorating the fundraising efforts of all participants in the Weekend to End Breast Cancer, to be called the Weekend to End Women’s Cancers starting in 2010. In 2009, participants raised over $11.6 million.
