More than 200 people came out to Mercer Law School to walk in the 3rd Annual Joshua Wish Walk.
Supporters hit the pavement to help bring awareness to childhood cancer and fund research.
Families and guests enjoyed live music, food, a bouncy playground, train rides, a magic show, all in efforts to raise funds for research to find a cure for pediatric brain tumors.
"There is a worthy need to bring people together and bring awareness to raise funds to bring about better treatment plans and to ministry to the families that are going through cancer themselves," Tammy Layfield.
Organizers, Labrina and Trent Solomon, lost their son Joshua in 2009 from an inoperable brain tumor and now they raise money to help others.
"It can happen to anyone, It happened to my family. We never knew so many children were diagnosed and died with cancer each day. Cancer does not discriminate," Solomon said.
"It's a way to promote the unity that we need in order to get together to raise money. It really is all about raising money in order to fund cancer research," Suzanne Cassidy said.
The event is one of several this month recognizing September as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
