Willis, the Susan G. Komen 2018 Impact Award winner, was diagnosed with stage 3 lobular breast cancer in April of 2016.
She underwent a mastectomy of her right breast, four months of chemotherapy, breast reconstruction surgery and five weeks of daily radiation before being declared cancer-free.
Fox News personalities Bill Hemmer, Sandra Smith and Melissa Francis also took to the pavement on the rain-soaked day.

"Gerri Willis has been a real inspiration for all of us," Hemmer said. "She's pushed and she's pushed and she's pushed."
The Susan G. Komen Foundation is the country's leading breast cancer charity, having raised more money than any other organization to find a cure for breast cancer.
Fox News and Fox Business Network employees have raised more than $70,000 to find cures for the disease.

"I have a lot of people in my own life as well who have had scary incidents," Francis said.
During Sunday's race alone, the Susan G. Komen Foundation raised more than $2.5 million.
