WOODBRIDGE, Va. — A hike for breast cancer held at Leesylvania State Park in Woodbridge on Saturday netted $2,511.

The “Hike for a Cause” benefited the National Breast Cancer Foundation, and covered four miles of multi-surface terrain, through Leesylvania State Park’s historical, wooded trails bordering the Potomac River, said park spokeswoman Sarah Percival.

The day also included children’s activities, prizes, refreshments and the rock band Soul Gravity in concert during Leesylvania’s Music at the Marina free concert series.

Leesylvania’s Hike for the Cause debuted in August 2011 and raised enough money to pay for mammograms for16 at-risk women.
