A proactive, Morgan Park teen started Walk for Hope last summer, and this year, she's doing it again.
Dozens were out today walking around the Morgan Park neighborhood to support breast cancer. 13-year old Emma Haugen is the brains behind the operation. She says the event takes months to plan but it's worth every step of the way.
"When I was 10 our family friend was diagnosed with breast cancer, and I wanted to do something to help her so I decided to organize a walk for breast cancer."
All the money from prizes and donations go to the St. Luke's Breast Cancer Foundation.
