BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

Hopes for finding a cure for cancer took flight Friday in Bethlehem by way of butterflies -- lots of butterflies.

Freedom High School students released more than 1,500 butterflies in honor of loved ones who have succumbed to the disease.

They had to make a donation to take part in the event.

All of the money raised is going to the Cancer Support Community of the Greater Lehigh Valley.
