Learn About Making Strides

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks are the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, uniting nearly 300 communities with a shared determination to finish the fight against breast cancer. Passionate walk participants raise critical funds that enable the American Cancer Society to fund groundbreaking breast cancer research; provide free, comprehensive information and support to those touched by breast cancer; and help people take steps to reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it is most treatable.

What to Expect at a Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk

Making Strides Event Participants

We’re determined to make this breast cancer’s last century. Passion drives us to walk in and raise money for the Making Strides program. 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 Walk Donations

Making Strides walks 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.”

Making Strides Walks & Events Community Volunteers

When you walk and raise money for the Making Strides program, you join more than one million volunteers across the country whose common purpose is to beat this disease. Together, we can finish the fight against breast cancer.
