You may see a lot of women in pink walking around Houston this weekend.

The women are taking part in the Houston Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.

They walked 26.2 miles Saturday -- the same distance as a marathon -- and will cover another half marathon Sunday.

The 39-mile walk is one of a series of national walks organized by The Avon Foundation. Money raised by the walks help pay for breast cancer screenings, diagnosis, treatment and research.
