3-Day walkers make their way through town

A crowd — many decked out in pink — made their way through Del Mar Friday morning during the San Diego Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk, which started with an opening ceremony at 6:30 a.m. at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.

The fundraising walk involves more than 4,000 participants. They first walked up Del Mar’s Coast Boulevard to 15th Street, then turned right on Camino Del Mar/Pacific Coast Highway 101 passing through downtown Del Mar between 7:30 and 9 a.m., where businesses showed their support by decorating their shops in pink and residents to act as cheerleaders.

From there the walkers headed through Torrey Pines state beach into La Jolla, where they had lunch on the beach. From there they headed through Bird Rock, where elementary school students welcomed them on the corner of Waverly and Colima.

They will wrap up Day One at Mission Bay Park before taking off Saturday morning to trek past SeaWorld and into Ocean Beach and Point Loma and back to the Mission Bay Camp.

The walk ends with a trip through Old town, Mission Hills, Hillcrest and Downtown before the closing ceremony at Petco Park.
