​Walkers and supporters raised more than $75,000 in the Cancer Support Center’s Walk of Hope on Oct. 1.

Organizers expect the total to go higher as donations continue to come in to the center at 2028 Elm Road in Homewood. 

The walk included one- and three-mile routes and featured interactive activities such as a bubble machine, limbo area and therapy . . .
