Kohl's invited 80 survivors and top event participants to take part.

They went shopping at the Brookfield Kohl's store with a $250 gift card -- and there was no shortage of pink as the shoppers picked shirts, pants, shoes and water bottles.

Many of the women also bonded through their shared experiences.

Kohl's says it was a no-brainer for them to get involved in the cause.
