Students at Marshall University rallied Monday in favor of a pink bridge near Ritter Park.

Jason Sansom started painting one side of the bridge pink last week to promote breast cancer awareness. The park board owns that part of the bridge and objected to the color. The board told Sansom he had to paint the bridge white.

Sansom objects. Now, his plan to create awareness is getting all kinds of attention. Some like the color -- others do not.

Watch Dave Benton's story and you decide on which side of the bridge you stand.
