More than 1,000 people participated in the Paint El Paseo Pink Walk on Saturday Oct. 13 in Palm Desert. This is the Desert Cancer Foundation’s 6th annual walk to raise funds for free breast cancer screenings.
Walkers gathered at the Gardens on El Paseo to register, take a chance on raffle prizes from local businesses, and to meet other cancer survivors and families.
Pattie Day Caruso, a breast cancer survivor, was the emcee. Many people brought their young children and dogs all dressed in pink for this occasion. Pink beads, balloons, ribbons and pink T-shirts were the color of choice for the day. Walkers started down El Paseo street in Palm Desert cheered on by the Shadow Hills cheerleaders from Indio.
