The event started at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Camino Del Mar was heavily adorned with pink ribbons, pink balloons, and pink storefronts. All throughout the town, large crowds of supporters cheered and encouraged the walkers on their journey south. The celebration also included live music and cheerleaders.
Del Mar is the first city the walk passed through on the 60-mile journey south to the final destination at Petco Park on Nov. 23 for the 3-Day Walk closing ceremonies.
