PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Teams of walkers gathered at Oaks Amusement Park Sunday morning for the CureSearch Walk for Children's Cancer.

The event included medals to acknowledge the bravery of childhood cancer survivors. Organizers also released doves to honor those who lost their fights with cancer.

Statistics show that every day, 43 kids are diagnosed with some type of cancer.

However, chances of survival have been steadily increasing for decades, with the overall survival rate now around 90 percent.
