Sherwood Island in Westport was filled Sunday for a breast cancer awareness walk. 
The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is finally back in person, after they held a drive-thru event back in 2020 because of COVID-19.
It was a morning full of people jamming to music and dancing to support a good cause.
The funds raised will go back into the community to provide reimagined and new ways to support and fund the future of breast cancer research and programs.
So far, American Cancer Society says they raised about $225,000 from this event alone with a goal of $300,000.
