GOUVERNEUR — The annual Gouverneur Business Women Breast Cancer Walk on Saturday raised about $87,500 and tallied a record number of 50 teams, board member Judy A. Bush said. About 750 to 800 people participated in the 1-mile walk.

Money raised helps with the expenses of those diagnosed with breast cancer, including co-pays, travel costs and other bills, as well as gift bags for patients.

Including this year’s money, the organization has raised $842,500 over its 13-year history to help women in St. Lawrence, Lewis and Jefferson counties.

Ms. Bush said donations were down slightly this year, likely because of Saturday’s chilly weather, but said she was “delighted” with the amount raised.

“It’s an awesome day,” she said.
