Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a great way to fight back against breast cancer and provide hope to all people facing the disease. Making Strides is not a race; it is a celebration of survivorship, an occasion to express hope, and a shared goal to end a disease that threatens the lives of so many people we love. Making Strides walks do not have a registration fee or minimum fundraising amount. They are open to men, women, and children of all ages. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer unites friends, families, and coworkers to raise awareness and funds to fight breast cancer. Your support enables the American Cancer Society to fund groundbreaking breast cancer research, provide up-to-date cancer prevention and early detection information, help ensure all women have access to mammograms and follow-up care, and provide free programs and services that improve the quality of life for people facing breast cancer.

In 2007, nearly 500,000 walkers in 130 communities across the country joined the American Cancer Society in our united fight against breast cancer. Together, we raised more than $50 million through Making Strides events and we did it one donation at a time. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is more than just a walk it describes the amazing progress we’re making together to defeat this disease. You are helping us raise dollars and awareness that leads to this incredible progress; and we did it together, one walker at a time.

While we are Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, there is more work to be done to beat this disease … and we need your help! By participating in Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, you will provide hope and help to millions of people nationwide whose lives have been forever changed by this disease. Join us for a few hours of exercise, inspiration, camaraderie, entertainment, and most importantly, to honor someone you know who has been affected by breast cancer, especially if that person is you.
