ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KSDK) -- Despite a little heat and humidity, Saturday was the perfect day to hit the street, and strut.
Around 8,000 women laced up their walking shoes, and hit the trails at Forest Park to raise awareness of Breast Cancer.
The "Sista Strut" was created to help fight the disease in African-American women.
Studies show they're more likely to get breast cancer at a younger age and have a higher death rate than other women.
This is the fourth year for the Sista Strut in St. Louis. All of the money raised stays right here, to help women in our area.
