High Point, NC -- A local sorority came together Tuesday evening to honor those who have been affected by breast cancer.

High Point University's Zeta Tau Alpha sorority hosted its 7th annual Balloon Release at the Hoffman Amphitheatre.

The sorority released hundreds of pink balloons in an event that wrapped up ZTA's TH!NK P!NK Week. The sorority raised money and awareness for their national philanthropy, Breast Cancer Education and Awareness.

Four HPU students shared their experiences of having mothers who battled breast cancer. The school's vice president of community relations, Don Scarborough, also shared his story of losing his wife to breast cancer.

A spokesperson, and breast cancer survivor, for the Susan G. Komen Foundation was also in attendance.
