With bras and pink attire, a large contingent came out to take part in the inaugural American Cancer Society Key Largo Bridge Bra Walk on Oct. 20. The three-mile “tata trek” started at Gilbert’s Resort, went over the bridge to Blackwater Siren before returning to Gilbert’s. Monroe County sheriff’s officers were on hand to ensure walkers safely made it across the bridge. Cars passing by honked as walkers took to the bridge. One-hundred percent of registration fees went to the fight against breast cancer.
