Mapquest directions to Making Strides of Miami
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 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 prevention and early detection information, help ensure all women have access to mammograms and follow-up care, and provide free services that improve the quality of life for all patients and their families.
In 2006, 450,000 walkers in more than 120 communities across the country joined the American Cancer Society in our united fight against breast cancer. Floridians proudly raised more than $4.8 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. For the first time ever, we announced last year that deaths from cancer are declining and more people are surviving this disease. Last year, you helped us raise dollars and awareness that lead 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, healthy snacks, and most importantly, to honor someone you know who has been affected by breast cancer, especially if that person is you.
