CINCINNATI -- 9 On Your Side teamed up with the American Cancer Society to celebrate breast cancer survivors and promote prevention and early detection at "Paint the Square Pink" Friday.

Hundreds of volunteers, cancer survivors and their families filled Fountain Square in downtown Cincinnati from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday raising money for breast cancer research and providing free information on cancer screenings and treatment. 

Paint the Square Pink also helped raise awareness for the fundraiser Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, which takes over Yeatman's Cove at 9 a.m. Oct. 22. Find information about participating in this noncompetitive 3 to 5 mile walk at the website here.
