WALTHAM (CBS) – Organizers of the three-day Susan G. Komen Walk For The Cure are making some changes due to the dangerous weather.

On Friday, the first day of the event, eight people were transported to the hospital.

They were treated for dehydration and heat related conditions.

Organizers bumped up the start of Saturday’s walk to 6 a.m. because of the heat.

The dedicated walkers slept outside Friday night.

There are 1,700 people participating in the three-day 60- mile walk which benefits breast cancer research.
