The fight to end breast cancer starts with a single step. Start a team, join a team, or walk as an individual in one of our non-competitive, 3 to 5 mile events. However you decide to participate, we'll be here with you every step of the way. Our online tools make it easy to encourage friends and family to support you with a donation to help end breast cancer.
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, uniting nearly 300 communities to finish the fight. Every breast cancer walk and event is an incredible and inspiring opportunity to honor those who have battled breast cancer, raise awareness about what we can do to reduce our breast cancer risk, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease with research, information and services, and access to mammograms for women who need them.
What to Expect at a Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk
We're determined to make this breast cancer's last century. It's this passion that drives us to walk in and raise money for Making Strides. Passion for those we wish we could have back in our lives, for those fighting the disease today, and for a tomorrow without breast cancer.
Making Strides gives us power to make a real difference in the battle to end breast cancer. Because silence won't finish this fight - action will. Not only are you helping those who are currently fighting the disease, you're helping everyone who hopes to never hear the words "You have breast cancer."
When you walk and raise money for Making Strides, you join one million volunteers across the country whose common purpose is to beat this disease. Together, we can finish the fight against breast cancer.
The dollars raised through Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks help the American Cancer Society finish the fight against breast cancer through research, free information and services for those fighting the disease, and access to mammograms for women who need them. Search for a Making Strides participant by name or by team to support their fundraising effort. Or simply make a general donation to help end breast cancer forever.
Just a few hours of your day will help bring a lifetime of change for people facing breast cancer and their loved ones. Our volunteers help with registration, water stations, information, and many other important activities. Volunteer at a Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event and help make this breast cancer's last century.
